The need for solutions to environmental issues has never been greater. Sustainability, energy, climate change, mitigation and adaptation, extreme weather, biodiversity, land use, air quality, conservation, water, resource use, and health are among the challenges we face.

With a focus on interdisciplinary studies, the School of the Environment at the University of Toronto has an opportunity to make a difference. By bringing together scholars from many disciplines, students interested in the environment, and the wider community beyond the University, we are well placed to contribute to understanding and improving the complex relationships between humans and the environment in which we live.

As such, the School’s mandate is to enhance and expand environmental teaching and research within the Faculty of Arts and Science. It aims to involve multiple units in offering environmental programs as shared endeavours and to support research and scholarships that build on existing disciplinary strengths. It provides an intellectual home for students in environmental programs, including academic advising and enhanced research opportunities, with a focus on rebuilding shared undergraduate teaching programs; developing graduate programs; maintaining sustainability-related co-curricular opportunities; and offering high-quality professional development opportunities.

Take this opportunity to discover what the School has to offer.
