The emphasis of this seminar is on crafting short papers regarding the interpretation of historical sources as well as an independent research project for semester end, which would then be presented at a poster session. In this course students will be oriented to the wider history of veterinary medicine/husbandry around the world with a wider lens in time (from domesticating our earliest companions to the modern moment). Mentions of the concept of One Health and public health would also infuse the discussion of farming/ranching, companion animal medicine, and the general field of history approached from such a unique angle.HONR3007213473Honors Seminar: History of Veterinary MedicineMWF02:00 pm-02:50 pm3TBAZachary William Schulz (P)15015Seminars
Why is this course important? Climate change is a societal issue that is affecting natural and human systems right now. The debate and political polarization surrounding climate change issues is all around us and the messages can be confusing and difficult to interpret. It is important that as a society we are equipped with the scientific knowledge and skills to interpret the collected information, make decisions about and prepare for and mitigate the impacts of a changing climate. What is this course about? We will investigate the science of Earth’s changing climate, the societal influences on climate change, as well as the expected impacts based on the collected scientific evidence. We will critically analyze key aspects of climate science, the drivers of climate change, Earth’s climate trends, the evidence of climate change, the predicted future climate scenarios, the expected impacts, and the array of possible response options. What can you expect to learn? At the end of this course our aim is for you to be an informed citizen equipped with the appropriate knowledge and skills to continue to your learning about global climate change beyond the timeline of this course and to be solutions oriented to solve this challenge as future leaders and scientists. As a result of this course you will be able to explain the basic science of climate change and it’s variability; recognize the scientific evidence, identify the drivers, trends, evidence, impacts, and future predictions of climate change; and understand the role of society in both contributing to and responding to climate change.HONR3007317224Honors Seminar: Climate Change and SocietyTR11:00 am-12:15 pm3TBAMartin Andres Medina Elizalde (P), Karen Sue McNeal15015Seminars

This course is a student-centered experience designed to equip you with the foundational skills necessary for leading people and organizations in the 21st century, with special emphasis on the human domain. Leadership is believed to be about understanding yourself to lead yourself, understanding others to lead others, and understanding organizations to lead organizations. 21st Century Leadership includes weekly 1-hour online modules to process foundational readings in preparation for highly interactive seminars, where you will experience course content coming to life through practical exercises and experiential activities. By the end of the semester you will have a deeper understanding of your and others' personality preferences, tendencies, and blind spots; you will be able to see organizations not as faceless bureaucracies but as functional collectives of human beings (and all of the opportunities and complications that people bring with them), and you will have crafted individual and organizational action plans in consultation with your fellow students and instructors to guide you in effecting immediate change in your lives.HONR3007517226Honors Seminar: Your 21st Century LeadershipR06:00 pm-08:00 pm3HALEY 3212TBA15015Seminars

Our vision for Auburn’s dining program is to create a living example of a sustainable food system here on campus. We produce vegetables, meat and fish via our partnership with the College of Agriculture, serve them in our dining halls, unserved food is donated to the Campus Kitchens Project, food waste (both pre and post-consumer) is composted, the compost would be used to grow more food. In addition, we are working to create a nutrition resource center where students with a variety of needs would be able to access information or help. The center would house campus kitchens and the campus food pantry, as well as be a gathering place for cooking classes, demonstrations, and even personal counseling sessions as needed. In this course students will conduct real-life applied research on who is doing any or all of these things well and what type of grant funding is available for sustainable food systems.HONR3987214657Honors Research Seminar: Sustainable Campus Food SystemTBA3TBAKen Darrie Thomas (P)15015Research Seminars

For better or worse, drugs, both legal and illicit, are an intricate part of our world. We are exposed to drugs from the womb till the grave. We see commercials for pharmaceuticals on a daily basis, and the news is flooded with headlines about addiction, drug crises, and new drug crazes. The purpose of this course is to provide you with a basic foundation for understanding drugs in our current society. We will accomplish this goal by exploring a variety of different issues related to how drugs are used, abused, and perceived in America, while learning fundamentals of how drugs have their effect on the brain and the body. Some topics of discussion will include: perceptions of addiction in the 20th century, the opioid crisis, the legal status of marijuana, treatments for addiction, and the Drug Scheduling system.HONR1087212936Honors Lyceum: Drugs in AmericaR02:00 pm-03:15 pm1HALEY 3218Robert Alexander Sauer (P)30030Participation
