Academics

Every day, the faculty and students at Boston University explore the grand challenge facing humanity: how to ensure a sustainable human existence on our planet. Faculty research covers diverse topics such as: sustainable energy systems, the impacts of pollutants on human health, “peak oil,” the impact of climate change on the world’s poor, the global carbon cycle, and the environmental history of Africa. Undergraduate and graduate students play vital roles in faculty research. In turn, this research supports some the nation’s preeminent environmental education programs that prepare students for graduate school or employment in the private, public and nonprofit sectors. Our curriculum also prepares young adults to become creative and contributing members of a society that faces a diverse array of personal and social challenges related to sustainability.

The faculty and students at Boston University are committed to communication and outreach that connects their research and classroom experiences to society at large. These activities include Boston-area sustainability initiatives to international environmental negotiations.
