School of Environment & Sustainability

Welcome to the School of Environment & Sustainability!

The School of Environment & Sustainability visionary, pragmatic leaders in a collaborative setting grounded in academic excellence and the principles of environmental justice and sustainability.  As the home of the oldest program in environmental studies in the United States, it remains an innovator in environmental thinking.  The School of Environment & Sustainability integrates the natural sciences, social sciences, and the humanities to focus on social and environmental justice through resource management, education, conservation, and community partnership.  Inquiry-based service learning and research are Antioch’s essential tools for engaging in local, regional and international environmental challenges.  

Our geographical range gives students an opportunity to engage with diverse communities, systems, and ecologies in programs that lead to advanced degrees to support careers in environmental leadership.  Programs in conservation biology, resource management and conservation psychology, with certificates in global information systems, food justice, leadership and climate resilience prepare graduates for meaningful work for a sustainable future.  Programs in urban environmental leadership allow students to engage in community based scholarship and action for sustainable and equitable outcomes.   Our doctoral program supports immersion in research questions that arise from integrating professional experience and scholarship.  Faculty in the School of Environment & Sustainability are committed to building skills and knowledge through student-centered experiential learning.  You’ll find our faculty working alongside students in the field and in the classroom, digging soil pits, mapping forest composition, tracking wildlife, writing regulatory policies, developing advocacy campaigns, and teaching.
