Professor Greve has a ton of experience with environmental and climate planning (I took both CRP 336 and CRP 440, Env. Planning and Climate Action Planning with her). Her technical knowledge is quite evident, and she is a rather effective teacher. She is clearly a staunch liberal, which comes out in her lectures, but as a liberal it didn't bother me too much. She has a habit of repeating herself and going on semi-related tangents, which are informative but take a *lot* of time when there is so much to cover. She is quite nice and reasonable, fair grader, gives you a lot of room to work on your grades with different assignments and tests. She takes a fair bit of time to grade, but otherwise I very much enjoyed both classes with her and I like her a lot overall as a professor. If you are engaged and want to learn, she will notice and appreciate it.
Grade Received: A
Positives:1. Knowledgeable in scientific/technical aspects of planning2. Strong technical writerNegatives: 1. Adrienne may or may not realize how much her tone comes off to the class as ranting/aggressive and how much class time she takes doing so, which can be particularly frustrating. 2. Adrienne can also be particularly microagressive and unapproachable on a personal level. In a passive aggressive and sometimes directly aggressive ways, she makes it clear whom she thinks is "a problem", and puts these students in a box and allows her prejudice to take over regardless of circumstance or other evidence that would prove that a student is actually not as bad as she thinks (or bad at all). She has also makes microaggressive cultural comments which she herself may not even realize. This side Adrienne demonstrates is quite ironic because she has lectured the class multiple times on how to be a positive classmate and establish good group dynamics, however she herself does fully hold herself to what she preaches. The hypocrisy can be quite disappointing and unproductive to learn/work, especially because the student/professor power dynamics does not allow students to address issues like these. If you are quiet or keep to yourself, you will probably have no problems with her. However, if you have a different opinion or challenge (even if positive) the system in any way, you may see some of this side.
