Arkansas Tech University students are invited to a free screening of the film "Before the Flood" at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 21, in Ross Pendergraft Library and Technology Center room 300 south.
The film follows Leonardo DiCaprio as he goes on a two-year journey around the world to learn about and shine a spotlight on the potential risks associated with climate change.
The screening is presented by Collaborative Solutions (IPBL 4893), a new interdisciplinary course that will use project-based learning to investigate real-world solutions to contemporary problems.
Collaborative Solutions is offered during the spring 2017 semester with a focus on climate change. Dr. Caroline Hackerott, assistant professor of emergency management, will teach the first Collaborative Solutions course.
In order to ensure representation from a variety of academic disciplines, upper level students from every discipline across campus are encouraged to consider enrolling in the course.
