PSU Center for the Environment
Appoints Dr. Brian Eisenhauer Associate Director

Brian Eisenhauer, assistant professor of sociology in the
Plymouth State University social sciences department, has
been appointed associate director of the University’s
Center for the Environment (CFE).

Eisenhauer’s primary academic specialty is natural
resource-environmental sociology, a field that studies
community in its largest sense by examining the
interrelationships between society, culture and the
environment. He brings to the CFE a strong background in
social research methods, and an active and varied
research agenda.

Center Director Steve Kahl says, “Given that
environmental issues are as much about social and
economic factors as they are about science, we are very
pleased that Dr. Eisenhauer has joined the Center as associate
director. His appointment underscores the
multidisciplinary approach the Center for the Environment
and the University are taking toward serving the region.”

Eisenhauer holds a Ph.D. in sociology from Utah State University
and an M.A. from Humboldt State University. He earned his B.A. in
sociology at Colorado State.

At the Center, Eisenhauer’s responsibilities include
continuing to conduct social science research on environmental
topics and issues, participating in outreach, aiding in the
planning and administration of the CFE and facilitating
collaboration and research opportunities between PSU faculty and
students, and organizations external to the University.
