Robert Hall

What are your majors? Genetics and genomics and history with honors, with a certificate in excellence in stem cell sciences

What inspired your interest in the environment and/or community? My interest in the environment is spurred by my curiosity about the natural world and humanity’s place in it, especially in terms of evolution and ecology. My attention to community is driven by my desire to challenge myself, by tackling problems which have challenged me.

What would you say (or do you say) to other students about CESP and the Nelson Institute? For students new or unfamiliar with CESP and the Nelson Institute, I would argue that this program and institute is one of the few opportunities to practice the type of community work we often learn about in other classes.

Something few people know about you: Some things about myself that few people know is I am aiming to build a program called Liberated Intellects to help formerly incarcerated individuals who seek to better themselves through education, and I have only started traveling since March of 2022, but by March of 2023 I will have traveled to two new continents, Puerto Rico, and many different states.
