Meeting the Challenge
The School of the Environment strengthens the outstanding academic endeavors and scientific research already happening at Washington State University.
By bringing Earth sciences, ecosystem and natural resource ecology, sustainability sciences and social sciences under the same umbrella, the school will increase team-based research and scholarly output while also providing cutting-edge training for the next generation of scientists, resource managers, policy makers, and well-informed global citizens.
WSU is uniquely positioned among state agencies and institutions to address the many facets of our natural resources. Environmentally focused faculty are located throughout WSU’s multi-campus system and Extension offices in every county provide environmental education and sustainability outreach to learners of all ages.
