—DDCF faculty advisor
Rachel Carson’s book Silent Spring was the “epiphany” for Steven Yaffee, who read it in middle school and has pursued an education and career in the environment ever since.
After an undergraduate education in aquatic and wildlife science at the University of Michigan, he earned a Ph.D. in Environmental Policy and Planning from MIT (1979).
“Having both science and policy in my background has been critical to my understanding of the issues and—I believe—my effectiveness as a teacher, scholar, and practitioner,” writes Yaffee, who is the faculty advisor for the Doris Duke Conservation Fellows Program (DDCF) at the University of Michigan.
