Program Description:

Our approach to environmental education and research at the School of Natural Resources and Environment has evolved to mirror the complexities of the environmental issues that confront us. We understand our natural and physical environment as an intertwined, multifaceted system, and approach our pedagogy the same way. While we are grounded in robust environmental research, we expand our thinking and approach beyond the confines of traditional environmental education and draw upon other disciplines - public health, architecture, business, law - to develop ways to manage and conserve our natural resources. Our students are among the brightest in the country, driven by a commitment to safeguard our natural resources and develop methods of sustainable living.
