Dr. Daniel Shustack

Professor, Environmental Studies



I serve as one of the academic advisors for students in the Environmental Studies major.   I commonly work with students who have a particular interest in wildlife biology, but I also advise students with other interests as well.  As your advisor my goal is to help you discover your interests and set and achieve your academic (graduate school??) and professional goals.  Only one part of this process is picking out your classes each semester; I’m here to help with that as well.

One of your first meetings with me will involve as “entrance interview” that will help me understand you as a person and what your interests and goals are.  It is “ok” if you don’t have all the answers at this point! This is what college is all about.  As we continue to meet each semester I will prod you to excel academically and acquire new skills and experiences through coursework, research and internships.

I’m glad to chat just about anytime, so stop by or send an email to set up an appointment.  If I’m not your official advisor I am still glad to meet to talk about internships, courses, or research opportunities, etc. If you want to access my ENVI Canvas page to see other information about the Environmental Studies Department, internship posting, or research opportunities, just let me know.
