Our Faculty

This program encompasses faculty from three schools at UC Irvine with exceptional strength in areas relevant to the environmental profession, including Ecology and Evolutionary Biology in the Charlie Dunlop School of Biological Sciences, Earth System Science in the School of Physical Sciences, and Planning, Policy and Design in the School of Social Ecology.

Problem-based research with real-life application is the hallmark of the scholarship carried out by faculty in these departments. This new program deepens our collective commitment to professional development and career growth currently evident in the translational and interdisciplinary research we conduct.

Our partners in the community who participate in our curriculum and programs are leading professionals in a range of organizations addressing pressing environmental management and conservation challenges.
