Advancing Knowledge of Earth, Environment and Ecosystem Sciences
The School of the Environment is fully committed to advancing scientific knowledge of:
- Water – Connecting Earth and Life
- Global Change – Sustaining Healthy Landscapes and Communities
- Earth System Dynamics
Our research efforts are defined by the diverse interests and expertise of our faculty in combination with societal and scientific needs, and reflect the breadth and integration of scientific disciplines represented in the school. Research capabilities are significantly enhanced by collaboration and cooperation with WSU’s multiple campuses, research centers, extension offices, adjunct faculty members, scientists, and an extensive network at other universities and with state/federal agencies.
