Sabbatical at Sea

Professor Rick Barnes brings lessons learned during voyage back to Randolph. Barnes taught environmental psychology and sustainable community courses on the MV Explorer with the Semester at Sea program. He crossed the equator, got soaked with fish guts and hung out with Nobel Prize winner Desmond Tutu (who can be seen sporting a snazzy Randolph College t-shirt).
