Center for the Environment
Research. Contemplation. Action.
Developing environmentally conscious citizens as leaders, advocates, scientists, artists, humanitarians, thinkers & business people.
With over 400 acres of land to learn from, the Center for the Environment has plenty of space to explore stewardship, research and outreach in outdoor classrooms.
The Center for the Environment aims to create a campus where the community can live and work sustainably by using our natural space to educate students, faculty and staff.
From student-run projects and internships to discussion groups and clubs on campus, the Center for the Environment works to create a space for student engagement.
