Environmental Studies

Issues related to the natural environment grab and demand our attention. Although many of these issues can be studied within a single discipline, environmental problems also require a uniquely interdisciplinary focus to understand the way ecosystems function, how technological advances and human behavior affect fundamental ecological processes, and what political and psychological tactics may be harnessed to address the problem.

The Environmental Studies (ENVS) Program pulls together students and faculty from across the curriculum to explore and understand the nature of environmental processes and the environmental challenges we face.

In addition to our faculty offices on the ground floor of Williams Hall, the ENVS Program features a small library space in the third floor lounge of Morgan Hall. We invite anyone interested to stop by, update and deepen their environmental knowledge, or just hang out. There are current issues of environmental newsletters as well as a small library of reference sources and some information about graduate school opportunities.
