    A scientist known internationally for research on climate and ecosystems—and who has a track record of getting wide-ranging groups of experts to focus on environmental issues—Lisa investigates how ecosystems and human societies adapt to climate change, with a special focus on droughts, something Washington state experiences both east and west of the Cascade Mountains. As College of the Environment Dean, Lisa, former Director of the University of Arizona’s School of Natural Resources and the Environment, leads a college with 1,400 students, 11 core units and 185 faculty members.

Bob has been a long-time student and practitioner of general management and organizational leadership. His interests and work lead him to explore what makes managers and leaders effective, how people can be developed to be good managers and leaders, and what causes people to succeed or fail in these important roles.
