Environmental Science & Policy Program
The Environmental Science and Policy Program (ESPP) was established in 2003 as an umbrella for environmental research and graduate education at MSU. ESPP's Web site (environment.msu.edu) centralizes information about the wide array of environmental efforts at MSU. It includes an "experts" database, with information about 180 faculty members, for easy access by media and the public.
ESPP initiatives include: partnerships in graduate education and research with Zhejiang University in China; ongoing activities on climate change in the Great Lakes region to bring together MSU researchers, engage with decision makers, and make MSU a hub for work on this critical issue; engagement to consider the human and environmental dimensions of the bioeconomy; and graduate specializations that explore diverse disciplinary perspectives on the environment.
