The civic entomology lab’s mission is to build community-focused collaborative experiences between people representing diverse backgrounds, especially those often underrepresented in the sciences, and the Department of Entomology to help achieve positive human, animal and environmental health outcomes. Research focuses on educational, behavioral and health outcomes of One Health Extension programming. Current projects include One Health literacy, community-science driven tick surveillance and beneficial insects in indigenous garden programs. Teaching efforts include Insect Biology (ENTO 115), Science and Decision-making (SCIL 101), Experiential Learning in Entomology Research, Teaching, and Extension (ENTO 395) and Current Issues in Entomology (ENTO 485).
