Community Education and Outreach
In addition to answering complex questions about the science of the Earth as a system, ESS Faculty, Research Staff and Graduate Students are engaged in a variety of environmental issues. The department recognizes the responsibility of educating future generations of students, and building environmental awareness. To accomplish these goals, representatives are involved in presentations to students of virtually every age, participants in collaborative projects, and resources for various organizations.
