Welcome to Environmental Studies

At the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, this is what Environmental Studies looks like:

  • Studying global trends to support local action
  • Crossing disciplines to research the whole story
  • Learning by doing through hands on practicum partnerships, and
  • Working side by side with faculty and professional staff in the field

We're making the map, not just following it. From the computer lab to the greenhouse … From the creek bed to the boardroom … The Environmental Studies Program makes you part of the answer. Join us!
