The MENV Program educates our students to advance sustainability solutions across a wide-range of environmental careers and sectors by promoting a community of learning through engaged and interdisciplinary classes and real-world professional experience. 


MENV provides environmental leaders with the knowledge, skills and experiences necessary to understand a changing world and build a more just, sustainable, and productive planet.
