More on the Speaker
Professor Proctor joined Lewis & Clark faculty in 2005. His recent work focuses on environmental theory, interdisciplinarity, and new learning technologies, with a varied academic background including geography, religious studies, and environmental science/engineering. Jim grew up in the small town of Canyonville in rural southern Oregon, and helped found a nonprofit, Alder Creek Community Forest, on land he owns, to give something back to a special place. He has lived in Swaziland, New Mexico, and California (where he served at UC Santa Barbara for 13 years), but was happy to return to Oregon. Jim holds a Ph.D. in Geography from University of California at Berkeley (1992); M.A. in Geography from University of California at Berkeley (1989); M.S. in Environmental Science and Engineering from University of California at Berkeley (1989); and B.A. in Religious Studies from University of Oregon, Religious Studies (1980).
