Connecting People, Community, and the Earth


Environmental Leadership Series:
Elizabeth Kolbert

-  September 19

The Center for the Environment, founded in 1998, is dedicated to engaging MHC students more actively in the scientific, social/human, and global dimensions of environmental study.

The center enables students to make connections across disciplines, across points of view, and across structures that help them understand the concept of “environment” more broadly in their work, community, and lives.

The Center for the Environment's goals are to ensure that students:

  • develop a critical understanding of fundamental environmental issues and the interactions between people and environmental systems
  • explore social, cultural, historical, political-economic, and scientific dimensions of environmental concerns
  • make direct connections between academic studies and real-world issues, problems, and solutions
  • understand the connections between cultural diversity and biodiversity.
