Work for the Miller Worley Center

The Miller Worley Center for the Environment (MWCE) prepares students to think critically, creatively and globally — to tackle the world's most complex issues as environmental leaders. It advances a culture of environmental sustainability and justice on campus and beyond through community building, programming that encourages environmental literacy, and opportunities for sustainable action and leadership in service of all generations.

Situated within a world-class liberal arts college the Center uses the campus as a living lab to educate about environmental systems while raising awareness about global systems that disproportionately impact marginalized populations. We are committed to creating a campus community that is anti-racist, equitable and just through a holistic understanding and inclusive approach to sustainability through our programs and initiatives.
