Christy Clay has been teaching at Westminster College since 2007. She teaches a variety of courses including Introduction to Ecology, Organisms and Evolution, Advanced Ecology, Introduction to Environmental Studies, Environmental Studies Senior Seminar and Environmental Biology. She believes that students learn best by doing, so many of her courses involve long-term research or service-learning projects. In addition to teaching, Christy's work at Westminster includes advising students, chairing the Environmental Studies Program, and working with students in the Campus organic garden, chicken cooperative and beehive. Christy also has an active research program investigating the environmental and ecological constraints of urban agriculture and food production. In her free time, Christy can be found working in her own garden, trail running or mountain biking, and obsessing about the current state of our food and agriculture system.
