Research & Innovation

At the heart of the Environmental Studies undergraduate program are student-developed research projects that focus on areas such as energy, food, water, social dynamics, and climate.

We prepare students to contribute solutions for current and future local, regional, and global environmental challenges.

Our program has at its foundation the systemic principle of sustainability for the development of solutions to environmental and natural resource issues.

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.
