Welcome to Huxley College's Environmental Education Graduate journal, Summit to Salish Sea: Inquiries and Essays. This publication is designed to celebrate the work of an unusual and exciting Masters of Environmental Education program hosted by Western Washington University's Huxley College of the Environment and North Cascades Institute. The articles within this journal represent final capstone presentations which are delivered at the end of the graduate students program. They are separated into two submission styles: speeches and articles. Some of the submissions are enriched with multimedia, including audio, video, and photography.

Cohort 14!

Welcome to the second issue of Huxley College's graduate journal, Summit to Salish Sea: Inquiries and Essays. This years' collection of student's capstones represents an introspective orientation to teaching from the power of sensitive teachers to processes of othering. Creativity abounds for this cohort, engaging the audience in play, storytelling, and even aerial silks! The power and value of student work is exemplified by their passion and attention to advocacy. Pay attention to discussions of environmental justice as they relate to environmental education, embodied learning, introversion and EE, ecological identity, multicultural education, full value contracts, other-than-human teachers, and Christianity and EE.
