Josh Gruver joined the faculty at Ball State University in 2010. His Ph.D. from Penn State University is in Forest Resources and the Human Dimensions of Natural Resources. Josh’s area of specialization focuses on the sociocultural, economic, and biophysical dimensions that inform the human-natural resources dynamic. He is particularly interested in decision-making processes among private forest landowners regarding succession planning, as well as, their perceptions and attitudes towards forest parcelization and conservation. His central goal as a scholar is to integrate knowledge produced at the university with local knowledge and experience to co-create working solutions toward natural resource related issues. Some of his recent work focuses on exploring the motivations, perceptions, and regional contextual factors that influence land and soil management decisions of small-scale farmers in East Central Indiana. Josh teaches Research Methods for graduate students in NREM. He also teaches Forest Planning and Stewardship, Environment and Society, Wilderness and Society, Human Dimensions of Wildfire Management, and the NREM capstone course, Integrated Resource Management.
