About Me

Dr. Sherie McClam has worked to reform science education for over 18 years in richly diverse contexts inside and outside of the United States. After receiving her Ph.D., Dr. McClam took an appointment at the University of Melbourne in Australia where she was able to bring her social justice scholarship in the underrepresentation of women and minorities in science together with her passion for environmental justice. She served as a deputy director for the University of Melbourne’s Office for Environmental Programs (OEP), assisting the director in the management and further development of their internationally recognized, multidisciplinary Graduate Environmental Program (GEP). After returning to the United States, Dr. McClam worked as an environmental education consultant and collaborated with a local school and watershed management association to develop place-based and problem-based curriculum designed to engage students in learning through immersion in local watershed and land management issues. At Manhattanville since 2009, she continues to promote a view of learning that is grounded in conceptions of interdependence, shared responsibility and civic engagement. She is committed to developing an Education for Sustainability (EFS) focus within and reputation for the School of Education and the broader college community.
