In this course, we examine the complexity of our Headwaters Region from interdisciplinary perspectives. But we also examine the source of a trans-formative educational experience, and imagine how that can flow into a prosperous intellectual, civic, and personal life. This discussion-based seminar, supplemented by our Headwaters Lecture Series and field trips exploring the Gunnison Country's learning laboratories, introduces you to Western dedicated faculty, diverse disciplines, supportive culture of learning, and active lifestyle.
