Andrus Center Events
Our well-attended events highlight independent, nonpartisan engagement on critical issues confronting Idaho, the American West, and the United States.
The responsibility of citizenship is not merely to participate, but to participate based on knowledge and information that form the basis for intelligent decisions. To that end, the Center organizes events that highlight independent, non-partisan engagement on issues surrounding public lands and the environment, education, and leadership.

Public Lands: Past, Present, and Future
In Fall of 2020, our colleague John Freemuth, University Distinguished Professor of Public Policy and Cecil D. Andrus Professor of Environment and Public Lands, was scheduled to teach a Public Lands Class for undergraduates in the Environmental Studies program. He passed away suddenly on May 2nd. Instead of cancelling the class, a team of colleagues and students decided to reinvent it as a tribute to John and a conversation about the past, present, and future of public lands. We called on his incredible network of friends and experts, inviting twenty-five individuals to prepare talks for the twenty students enrolled in the course and for visitors to this site.
