Message from the Director

Dr. Kent Keller, Director
School of the Environment

Welcome to WSU’s School of the Environment. Our faculty and students study the breadth of subjects that help us understand the Earth and its natural systems, ranging from the planetary processes and structures to the streams, rivers, lakes, wetlands, farms, forests and rangelands that are the natural resource base and life support system.

Our research and teaching supports undergraduate programs in earth, environment, and natural resources.  Our graduate degrees lead to research, professional, and management careers based on an interdisciplinary understanding of the earth, its environments, and its resources.  We strive to develop both scientific and social understanding of how these systems work and how they are managed and influenced by human activities.  We work at the local, regional, and global scales on problems related to earth systems, water in the environment, and how global change affects sustainability our resources.

We have great students, exceptional faculty, and accomplished alumni.  With faculty and programs across the state of Washington, we have a place for you.
