About Center for the Environment

Mission

The Center for the Environment is dedicated to creating new approaches to learning that engage students more actively in the scientific, social/human, and global dimensions of environmental study, and to developing an interdisciplinary education program that is embedded in the broader College curriculum. The Center aims to enable our students and community to work toward environmentally responsible, just, and equitable societies by bridging diverse interests and backgrounds, and by deepening the connections between people, community, and the Earth.
