For several years, Professor Brennan Lagasse has traveled to this special place with SNU students to live and work with the Gwich’in Tribe. We travel above the Arctic Circle and spend a week of cultural immersion with the Tribe while studying the six pillars of Holistic Sustainability.

This course is built on a special invitation made from the Tribe to SNU students to visit “the last great wilderness”.
