One Health

DelVal is a community of students, faculty, and staff who are committed to the environment, justice, and health for all people.


One Health is a multi-disciplinary approach that works locally, regionally, nationally, and globally to attain optimal well being for people and society, the environment and plants, and animals. Together, the three major components make up the One Health triad, and the well-being of each is inextricably linked to the others in the triad.

One Health Week at DelVal is Nov. 2 through Nov. 7. Download a One Health Week schedule for a full list of events (PDF)

The Anthropocene: What it is and are we there yet?

J.R. McNeill will explain the term and concept of the Anthropocene and present an overview of evidence in support of the idea that the period since about 1950 is a wild departure from longer-term patterns in environmental history. For the last several years, he has been working with geologists in the "Anthropocene Working Group" tasked with figuring out if geology should formally recognize a new epoch. He will explain some of what geologists have seen in terms of environmental history.
