Dwayne Estes speaks at Grasslands initiative

Dwayne Estes, Ph.D.

Professor of Biology

When Dr. Estes founded the Southeastern Grasslands Initiative, he wanted to lead environmental change. Now, as Tennessee’s Conservationist of the Year, he’s well on his way to restoring some of the world’s most endangered habitats.

“This initiative is an attempt to restore bits and pieces of this ecosystem that we’ve lost over the last 200 years…The explorers who described (southeastern) prairies in the 1790s, they described buffalo and prairie chickens—things we don’t have any more. You have to remember, it was originally grassland for thousands and thousands of years before we got here.”

Karen Sorenson, Ph.D.

Professor of French

If you want to learn a foreign language (and in today’s global society, you should), then you have to go aboard. At least, that’s what one of the state’s top foreign language professors believes.

“With our study abroad programs, we are giving Austin Peay students a chance to go somewhere else in the world and experience a culture and way of life that’s different from their own. And by giving them immersion-based experiences, they are able to develop skills that they couldn’t earn any other way.”
