Clement Loo


Hi, I’m Clement Loo (he/him). I was born in a trailer in the frozen wastelands of the Canadian north. I then spent the next couple decades tackling folks or trying to be as fast as possible while sliding down mountains with a stick strapped to my feet. At some point, I thought I needed to do more with my life. So, I went to college at the University of Calgary, where I studied psychology and philosophy. Then, deciding that I still wasn't done with school, I enrolled in the University of Cincinnati, where I earned a PhD in philosophy. After the PhD and a couple of years of sitting in rooms with smart people in Connecticut, I came to UMN Morris to teach Environmental Studies in 2013. Starting in 2018, I've also been running the best program at UMN Morris: Gateway! For fun: I throw plastic discs at chains, hit balls in the general direction of others, and try to stack as many things as possible on my dog's head before she stops me. I also continue to enjoy tackling people when life presents me the opportunity to do so.
