Sarah Lashley joined the faculty and staff of Centre College in 2012 as Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning and Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies.

Prior to joining the Centre College community, Lashley taught in the Environmental Studies Program and Department of Sociology at Colby College in Waterville, Maine as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in Environmental Human Rights. She has also served as an environmental education Peace Corps volunteer in northeastern Ukraine and worked as an instructional consultant for the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching at the University of Michigan.

Her areas of research and interest include collaborative problem-solving, civic engagement, environmental justice, social stratification and movements, and urban planning theory. She is particularly interested in how models of civic engagement and experiential learning impact local networks, community relationships, and mechanisms for social change.

At Centre, Lashley teaches courses related to environmental justice, environmental conflict management, and alternative dispute resolution.

She earned a B.A. with honors in environmental studies from Allegheny College, and M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in natural resources and environment from the University of Michigan.
