The U.S. takes an exceptional approach to environmental protection, bucking many of the policies adopted by other developed nations. We'll discuss the various environmental policymaking arms of the government, as well as ways in which the courts help to determine the course of American environmental protection. We'll then consider the role of citizens and civil society in shaping government responses to environmental challenges. Join Dr. Andrew Tirrell, from the Department of Political Science and International Relations, to learn more.

Bridges Academy is a continuing education program for those 55 and older. Join us for exciting lectures given by USD’s leading faculty. All lectures are held mid-week on the picturesque USD campus. While the lecture series is free to all participants, the Office of Planned Giving encourages the growth of the Bridges Endowed Scholarship fund, which awards merit-based scholarships to undergraduate students.
