This organizational structure helps faculty collaborate and share knowledge and resources, and makes it easy for students to connect with faculty and other students in related programs.

The Center for Biodiversity

Loss of biodiversity affects our food sources, our medicines, our ability to combat disease, our raw materials for industry, and our overall sense of being. Programs within the Center for Biodiversity focus on the study and preservation of biodiversity in all types of habitats—marine, terrestrial, and freshwater. We prepare students to effectively address issues of biodiversity by providing essential scientific knowledge of the physical and life sciences.

Majors

The Center for Environmental Arts and Humanities

Capturing the attention of the public through strong and effective art and writing can transform the world. Our students are the writers and artists who hold a vision of what could be. They are committed to deep reading, thoughtful writing, visionary artistry, and creative imagination, allowing them to play an essential role in shaping the future of the planet.

Majors

The Center for Experiential and Environmental Education

We believe that learning happens most powerfully when people are deeply involved with the natural world, their communities, and one another. Programs within the Center for Experiential and Environmental Education provide students with the tools for professional practice as engaged and environmentally aware experiential educators.

Majors

The Center for Natural Resource Management and Protection

We all have a stake in a healthy, productive environment. Today's land stewards and managers face new and complex challenges as they work to sustain and protect the earth's biodiversity for us all. That's why we teach our students how to develop effective protection measures within real-life natural resource management situations.

The Center for Sustainability and Global Change

Tomorrow’s environmental professionals need to be smart and flexible—creative problem solvers who are prepared to face 21st-century environmental challenges. That’s why we’ve developed a suite of programs that cultivates a broad literacy in global change issues. Sustainability and Global Change students, working with community partners, address difficult environmental problems through the development and application of real-life measures to protect our natural and social worlds.
