The College of the Environment accomplishes its mission with the participation of faculty, staff and external advisors. The COE has a governing structure that includes Environmental Studies faculty who serve as Director and a six member Governing Board. This board will help with all planning and programming as well as ensure diverse input into the running and coordination of COE. In addition, we have appointed an External Advisory Board that consists of outstanding individuals and public intellectuals, recognized and honored for their achievements in the environmental arena. To emphasize our liberal arts nature and to ensure that the COE is truly interdisciplinary, Advisory Board Members have been chosen to represent areas from each of the academic divisions.
