We provide opportunities for students.
Our students learn from and work with people and partners on campus and throughout the world. Together, we confront environment and sustainability challenges head-on and with confidence. We aim to be bold. We take heart in working together to sustain and restore healthy conditions that sustain people and the diverse wonders of our planet.
We span the resources of Cornell.
As a cross-college major, we are available to students in the College of Arts & Sciences and the College of Agriculture & Life Sciences. Five Cornell colleges are represented by faculty and courses associated with the major. Cornell programs and facilities throughout the U.S. and other countries further extend our reach beyond the Ithaca campus.
We work across the globe.
Our network of faculty, staff and alumni support our undergraduate students throughout their time on campus and beyond. Faculty and alumni provide connections with a broad range of local, regional, national and international off-campus organizations and institutions working together with common purpose.
Students can pursue field experiences outdoors and in the offices of policy-makers.
Making a positive impact
Student experiences, alumni pathways, news and other environment and sustainability stories.
Communities of all kinds are rocked by environmental issues that test their fortitude and adaptability. Shorna B. Allred, Natural Resources and the Environment, wants to help them build resilience to these shocks. Her own experience growing up on the Gulf Coast of Texas in a county with 30 petrochemical and oil refineries has a lot to do with that.
