The Thomas Berry Great Work Award -- Nominations

The Thomas Berry Great Work Award, the Environmental Consortium of Colleges and Universities seeks nominations for the Thomas Berry Great Work Award.   Deadline for submissions: May 30, 2012

The Thomas Berry Great Work Award recognizes individuals in higher education whose work exemplifies Berry’s admonition that colleges and universities should “reorient the human community toward a greater awareness that the human exists, survives, and becomes whole only within the single great community of the planet Earth.”

The work of such individuals from within the Hudson and Mohawk River bioregional community has nurtured progress and prosperity of the entire life community.

The award is named for and honors Thomas Berry, whose vision for the role of the university in a New Cosmology that celebrates the inherent interconnectedness of humans and nature, inspired the formation of the Environmental Consortium in 2004.

The mission of the Environmental Consortium is to harness higher education’s intellectual and physical resources to advance regional, ecosystem-based environmental research, teaching, and learning through interdisciplinary, collaborative programs and information sharing.
