Environmental Studies and Sciences



The ES&S Program has 7 dedicated ES faculty members, and 50 affiliated faculty from other departments who teach ES-designated classes.  They have a wide range of domestic and international experience, conducting cutting-edge research on an array of important issues.  They publish articles and books on subjects ranging from conservation of agricultural biodiversity to voluntourism in Costa Rica, and from carbon fluxes in the ocean to the effect of particulate matter on the chemical balance of the atmosphere, and even made a documentary on local sustainability initiatives in the Hudson Valley (see https://www.sustainingthisplace.net/category-s/107.htm).  Their publication record is impressive, but more important is their dedication to excellence in teaching and to their students.
