  • We Study Beyond the Classroom

    Research is an essential part of the School of the Earth, Ocean & Environment and our faculty and students are active in the field.

Understanding and caring for our planet requires an appreciation of the sweeping arc from the solid earth, to freshwater and marine systems, to the relationship of humans to those environments. Our mission at the School of the Earth, Ocean & Environment is to achieve an understanding of Earth’s diverse environments and human relationships through research, and to convey that understanding through education, and outreach to the broader community.


Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
