Greetings from the Director

Happy New Year! The Institute of the Environment and Sustainability begins 2011 with a fresh identify, having officially incorporated sustainability into our designation. The name change was a natural evolution for our organization as we already work to apply a sustainability component to our cross-disciplinary research, teaching and public service.

Please enjoy learning more about the Institute through this newsletter. To stay up to date on all IoES activities subscribe to our listserv by writing, visiting our web site,, liking us on Facebook  and following us on Twitter.

Stay tuned as exciting developments are in the IoES’s future!
