At the heart of the program are student-developed research projects that focus on areas such as energy, food, water, social dynamics, and climate, driven by the systemic principle of sustainability.

Most of the research is conducted by undergraduate students, which prepares them to contribute solutions for current and future local, regional, and global environmental challenges.

In an effort to move students to action in our program, we have developed integrated learning opportunities that begin in year one!

Our Environmental Studies Orientation course, ENVR 101, has partnered with the Lincoln Public Schools Sustainability office since 2015 to actively engage new Environmental Studies students in making local change happen.
