Recently, LSC chair Dominique Brossard, associate professor Bret Shaw, and faculty associate Don Stanley teamed up with the UW-Madison Urban Canid Project, a project that investigates the way canids are living in Madison and how we coexist with them.

The start to a new school year provides plenty of opportunities for students

As the summer comes to a close, we are excited to welcome new and returning students from across the state and world to LSC’s home in Hiram Smith Hall. [caption id="attachment_12850" align="alignright" width="337"] Hiram Smith Hall summer 2018[/caption] In the coming weeks, LSC students will explore the theory and practice of subjects at the cutting edge of science communication. Some students will begin research projects and work on manuscripts that may be published in academic journals. Other students will create multimedia projects, design original websites and media content.
