Where the Sidewalk Ends

Georgia on their minds

I'm a scholar, but I'm also a citizen. I separate the two somewhat, but I think the purpose of acquiring knowledge is to improve the world.
--Howard Frumkin
Associate Professor and Chair, Environmental and Occupational Health, School of Public Health

--Steven Walton
Assistant Professor of Decision and Information Analysis, Business School
