Dr. April Baptiste

My tenure at Colgate University began in 2009, in the Environmental Studies Program.

I am the first tenure-track professor exclusively in the Environmental Studies Program and look forward to the opportunities and challenges that are ahead of me as I make Colgate my new home. I teach courses related to Environmental Justice which is one of my areas of expertise. Currently I am an associate professor in the Environmental Studies Program setting a precedent as being the first tenured professor at Colgate exclusively in a program.

Having an interdisciplinary background provides unique opportunities within the Environmental Studies Program at Colgate and I continue to engage students and colleagues in multiple courses, research projects, and activities on the multiple environmental issues facing our society today.
