Our Mission


The Global Change and Sustainability Center is an interdisciplinary hub to catalyze research on global change and sustainability.


Our vision is to provide an interdisciplinary nexus for addressing challenges in global environment and sustainability issues. We seek to develop the links between research, education, and outreach in order to unite faculty across 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.
