Award recognizes contributors to the social ecology ethos
Dan Stokols, the founding dean of the School of Social Ecology, was recently awarded the School's inaugural Founders Award.
The award is the highest honor bestowed by the School. It recognizes individuals and organizations for their commitment to upholding the ideals and ethos of social ecology, and for their efforts to find solutions to the world's most complex problems.
Stokols was one of the first faculty members hired to at the School, and has dedicated his career to defining and shaping social ecology, and putting it into action. Last year, Stokols published Social Ecology in the Digital Age, a book that chronicles the origins of the field of social ecology, Stokols' contributions to it and the future that lies ahead for it.
Stokols accepted the Founders Award at the School's 25th anniversary event in June.
