Make a Difference


Climate Change


Reduce – Reuse – Recycle

These slogans are familiar to all of us. The global community we have today is opening up some new challenges. Improvements in technology, and its widespread availability, have led to improved conditions for many people, worldwide. At the same time, those opportunities have begun to stretch resource usage to unsustainable limits. Where does the line get drawn?

Environmental Studies is an opportunity for all students -- a chance to plug into a program that is going to help you be a global partner in the key issues of the 21st century.

  • You might be working toward a degree in engineering. Have you ever wondered how you might improve that project to make a good design even better and more beneficial?

  • You might be a business major. How can your business knowledge play a role in evaluating the benefits of sustainable activities?

  • You might be an art major. How can you use your talents to make other more aware?

Or, you could be in any program on campus. Wherever you are, you've got a stake in the future, and you can take a leading role in those endeavors.

Of course, you might already be a concerned individual and just want to know more. This program could offer you just the background you need to be informed. So, break out of your cocoon, and take part in something that will be important to you and your community.
