Dr. James Hayes-Bohanan - EarthView Coordinator

Dr. James Hayes-Bohanan has been teaching environmental geography and the geography of Latin America at Bridgewater State University since 1997, after ten years of university-level teaching in Ohio, Arizona, and Texas. He enjoys using coffee, chocolate, and tea as examples of the extraordinary geography of ordinary things. He is frequently invited to teach audiences of all ages about the people and lands connected to these products. Dr. Hayes-Bohanan believes in learning with his students in the classroom and in the field, whether on campus or as far away as the coffeelands of Nicaragua or the Amazon rain forest of Brazil. Dr. Hayes-Bohanan has visited or lived in Brazil, Canada, Cabo Verde, Cuba, Guatemala, Hungary, Jamaica, Jordan, Mexico, Nicaragua, Peru, Romania, Turkey, the United Kingdom, and the United States of America.

Courtney Sutcliffe -EarthView Coordinator

Courtney Sutcliffe’s first experience with EarthView was as a high school student when it came to her school. The program had such an impact that she went on to study Geography at BSU. While at Bridgewater, she worked as an EarthView Wrangler (student assistant) with the professors who founded the program and studied the geography of coffee in the department's Nicaragua travel course. Combining her love of geography and learning about global cultures, she then earned a Master's in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages. Professor Sutcliffe has been teaching since 2018 in the Geography and TESOL fields. She returned to the EarthView program as an educator in 2023 before becoming the EarthView Coordinator in 2024, eager to continue inspiring the next generation of global citizens through this immersive learning experience.

Project EarthView Interns

Bridgewater State University students are also essential members of the EarthView team. New students are selected to work with Project EarthView each semester. They bring fresh perspectives as geography and education majors, and also help to keep the EarthView program running smoothly.
