Fellowship institution:Program for Society and the Environment at the University of Maryland College Park
William Yagatich is a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Maryland, College Park, pursuing his doctoral degree in sociology as a fellow of the Program for Society and the Environment. His current research explores the intersection of physical surroundings, social knowledge, and the effect that is produced by the interaction between people and their environment. More specifically, he is studying differences among several Watershed Stewards Academies in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, highlighting the differences in training, public outreach, and reception as a consequence of the academies’ physical location within the watershed. Yagatich holds a master’s degree in sociology from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a bachelor’s degree in sociology from Coastal Carolina University. When he is not working or studying, he can be found trying to keep up with his newborn daughter, Brody.
