Prof. Buck first encountered the questions of political theory (What is freedom? What is justice?) as a member of his high school debate team, and he has been asking them ever since.
Similarly, his interest in environmental politics began with his involvement in environmental organizations as a senior in high school and throughout his college career. Grateful for the way in which the professors he had as an undergraduate sharpened his critical thinking skills, Prof. Buck strives to have the same impact on the St. Lawrence students enrolled in his courses.
Outside of the classroom Prof. Buck enjoys cycling, baking, playing Scrabble, and singing karaoke.
