John McGreevy, HECL Lab PhD student, spent the summer researching non-governmental organization (NGO) influence on social life and ecosystem health in rural Haiti. McGreevy worked collaboratively with a team of 16 interdisciplinary graduate research assistants, 8 from the United States and 8 from Haiti. Dr. Mark Schuller from Northern Illinois University led this international team as part of a study supported by a National Science Foundation CAREER Grant. Findings from this team will be presented as part of a panel at the Haitian Studies Association conference in Cap Haitien, Haiti in November. The theme for the conference is “Haiti’s Eco-systems: Focus on Environmental Realities and Hopes.”
