Drive solutions for a sustainable future
Join us to develop the knowledge, skills, perspectives, and ways of thinking necessary to help solve the world’s most significant environmental and resource sustainability challenges. With our program more than 20 years strong, E-IPER students and faculty work across academic disciplines—the physical and natural sciences, engineering, social sciences and humanities, law and policy, medicine, and business—to yield new insights and novel solutions to urgent global problems. They include clean energy, climate change, food security, water quality and quantity, land conservation, human health and sanitation, sustainable cities, ocean health, and biodiversity loss.
