The MFA in Collaborative Design welcomes Robert J. Lilieholm as part of the 2013-2014 Graduate Visiting Artist Lecture Series to deliver a lecture entitled, “Future Scenarios for Oregon’s Forests.” Panel moderated by Jennifer Allen (Institute for Sustainable Solutions).
Robert J. Lilieholm is the E.L. Giddings Associate Professor of Forest Policy at University of Maine. His research has taken him all over the world to explore ways in which wildlands can be sustainably managed to promote a variety of social, economic and ecological goals. In his research, Lilieholm models alternative future growth scenarios and develop market-based approaches to sustain communities and the surrounding lands upon which they depend. Before coming to UMaine in 2006, Lilieholm spent 18 years at Utah State University, and was a Visiting Fellow at the Lincoln Institute in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and at the Organization for Tropical Studies in Costa Rica.
