A Note from SHE’s President – Robert Dyball

Welcome to the Society for Human Ecology (SHE). Human Ecology presents a uniquely interdisciplinary approach to understanding the interactions between humans and their environments. SHE has a proud history, now some 30 years old, as a forum to debate and propose solutions to the problems that arise in these human-environmental systems. It was an honor for me to assume the presidency of SHE at the close of the 19th SHE conference at the Australian National University, Canberra. This arrangement has been extended at the highly successful 20th conference, that was hosted by the College of the Atlantic, Bar Harbor, Maine in October 2014.

A number of developments are now underway. These include successfully making the Society’s journal, Human Ecology Review, online and open-access. This has resulted in a significant increase in access and downloads, while hard copies continue to be available to members. There are also plans to revamp the Society’s webpages and to increase content and benefit to members. The overarching aim is to further enhance the value of membership of SHE and to extend and raise the profile and of Human Ecology more generally. Your suggestions to help achieve this would be gratefully received.

    Good morning. I am so glad to find this organization. Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, La. seems to have disassembled its School of Human Ecology, the school from which I earned my B.S. in Family and Consumer Sciences, Human Services Mgmt. degree (1999). I am beyond disappointment. When a bit more time allows I will get back on your site and do some reading, perhaps join your organization. Kind regards, Florence Murray, CFLE, Kerrville, Texas.
