Assistant Professor Patrick Greiner has been named C. Family Dean’s Faculty Fellow in Grand Challenges: Climate and Society for a term running from 2022-2024. The Dean’s Faculty Fellows Program launched in 2018 to support tenure-track faculty in their research, scholarship, and creative expression during their probationary period. Fellowship includes the opportunity for research funds and course reductions to provide resources for intellectual growth.

Professor Greiner’s research program explores how various forms of inequality emerging from social, political, and economic structures pattern socio-environmental outcomes in ways that are often detrimental to environmental systems and harmful to marginalized social groups. Put differently, Prof. Greiner’s research speaks to the ways in which inequality facilitates, and even necessitates, environmental degradations at the international and national level in the contemporary socio-economic system.

Congratulations, Professor Greiner!
