U.Va. Students During Study Abroad in AfricaCULTURES ARE SHAPED by their environment and these societies likewise alter their environment, according to Bob Swap, associate professor of environmental sciences at the University of Virginia. Swap, along with 15 U.Va. students and their faculty, returned to the United States this week from a trip to South Africa and Mozambique, where Swap taught a class on “People, Culture and the Environment of Southern Africa.” “The fact is, these students will someday be corporate, legal and policy leaders. We hope to help them realize that in the future, when they’re making decisions, those decisions will have repercussions around the world,” said Swap. Full story and student essays.

Pulitzer Prize-Winning Author to Visit U.Va. on Friday; Will Discuss ‘Improvising’ in War on Terror

Ron SuskindRon Suskind (left), a University of Virginia and Columbia School of Journalism alumnus, published his new book, “The One Percent Doctrine: Deep Inside America’s Pursuit of its Enemies Since 9/11,” on Tuesday. On Friday, Suskind will speak on the topic of his book during a Miller Center forum at 11 a.m. A book signing will follow the talk. Relying on unique access to former and current government officials, Suskind reveals in his latest work how the president and defense officials are “frantically improvising” in the war on terror. From 1993 to 2000, Suskind was senior national affairs writer for The Wall Street Journal and in 1995 received the Pulitzer Prize for feature writing. His 2002 book, “The Price of Loyalty,” focused on former Treasury Secretary Paul O’Neill’s fall from grace.
