Bruce Goldstein is an Associate Professor in the Program in Environmental Design and the Program in Environmental Studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. His work focuses on collaboration to address daunting social-ecological challenges, such as restoring fire regimes in the wildlands-urban interface and harmonizing common-property resource management with biodiversity protection. He is particularly interested in how learning networks can catalyze change in stable and durable institutions that are approaching dramatic social and ecological thresholds. Currently, Bruce and his project team are collaborating on four projects – a community and network-scale resilience assessment in partnership with the Fire Adapted Communities Learning Network, a study of urban resilience the Rockefeller Foundation’s 100 Resilient Cities Initiative, design and implementation of a nation-wide STEM learning network, and a study of the Locally-Managed Marine Areas Network in the South Pacific.
Bruce received his BA from Wesleyan University, his Masters of Forest Science from the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, and his Ph.D. in City and Regional Planning from the University of California, Berkeley.
