Welcome to the Environmental Center   


Many of the challenges of the 21st century will be environmental as humankind tests the carrying capacity of our planet. These environmental issues and problems are by their very nature multidisciplinary, so UNF has adopted a cooperative and integrated approach to understanding our environment and managing resources wisely. The Environmental Center will respond to the pressing need for research relevant to environmental issues, help design thoughtful planning processes, encourage responsible stewardship, and help prepare the next generation of environmentally literate society leaders.  


The mission of the Environmental Center is to establish, develop, and support cross-disciplinary education and research related to the environment. The Center fosters programs for students, faculty, and staff to pursue environmental activities through academics, research, and extracurricular activities. Also, the Center conducts and supports campus infrastructural projects involving sustainability and the campus’s natural environment. The Center develops connections and collaborations among university entities and between the university and the region.
