The Environmental Studies Program is comprised of core faculty as well as a program committee whose membership varies and whose college appointments are in such departments as economics, chemistry, psychology, biology, among others.

The Environmental Studies Program also relies on the support and experience of individuals who have formal and courtesy appointments with the college referred to as our affiliate faculty and scholars.
