This involves looking at real-world societal problems and using a crossdisciplinary approach. They require collaboration between researchers from all disciplines as well as community partners.
The Environment Initiative addresses perhaps the most pressing challenge of our time by shifting academic imperatives, integrating multiple ways to know, and taking on the largest challenge of our time. Every scholarly field has something to offer and can bring a wide range of expertise to the moment, from the humanities and the social sciences to the natural and business sciences, journalism, law, journalism, design, education, and law.

Our engagement is essential to our authentic participation in the country, the ecoregion, and the world as a public university that teaches, explores, and serves.
