Mission and Vision
Our vision is a Chesapeake Bay and watershed that is healthy and thriving; one in which natural systems and human communities are in balance. Interdisciplinary academic programs promote the integration of environmental issues, social values, and good old river mud.
The CES mission recognizes that we live in a world with increasing environmental and related social problems that are rapidly reaching crisis levels. We need to work toward solving these problems ourselves, but we especially need a new generation of creative, solution-oriented leaders.
Everything we do prepares our undergraduates – the next generation of leaders – to help solve the most pressing environmental problems of the 21st Century through innovative curriculum, real-world experiences, training in cutting edge technologies, and new ways of thinking.
Our vision is a Chesapeake Bay and watershed that is healthy and thriving; one in which natural systems and human communities are in balance. Strong interdisciplinary academic programs promote the integration of environmental and social values and graduates are prepared both in the classroom and through experience to be balanced and productive citizens, skilled and agile professionals, and champions and stewards of natural and cultural resources.
