Our Mission


The Global Change and Sustainability Center provides a hub to coordinate, promote, and accelerate interdisciplinary research and training on issues related to the environment and sustainability, from local to global scales.


Our vision is to provide an interdisciplinary nexus for addressing challenges in global environment and sustainability issues at the University of Utah. We seek to develop the links between research, education, and outreach in order to unite faculty across University departments, facilitate communication, foster interdisciplinary education, and create opportunities for campus and community engagement in sustainability. The overarching goal is to facilitate new approaches to responsible management and viability of natural, social, and economic systems so that future generations may have the same opportunities to live, work, and play that we enjoy today.
