Founded in 1970, the focus of the Environmental Studies Department is on a rigorous, systematic, and integrated approach to the study, management, and solution of environmental problems and issues. Upon completion of the degree, students have solid preparation for making substantial contributions to this expanding and vital field.
CDR/SJSU is the recycling hotline for Santa Clara County. CDR serves the County's 1.8 million people and the 15 cities in which they live. CDR's mission is to create and share information to facilitate the diversion of materials from disposal, while training students to become IWM professionals. Students, managed by faculty, cost-effectively serve the community by earning academic credit in exchange for staffing the County Recycling Hotline and developing the county's recycling and reuse guides.
MTI focuses on international surface transportation policy issues as related to three primary responsibilities: research, education, and technology transfer.
The Environmental Studies Program seeks to educate students about the complex interrelationship between human beings and nature and to inspire students to become concerned citizens influencing sound environmental policy decisions.
De Anza College's Environmental Studies Department integrates physical, biological, human, socioeconomic and political principles. Formal and non-formal methods of teaching help students acquire the basics of this field. These include a scientific foundation, an understanding of social and economic concepts, and an awareness of the behaviors that protect or damage the earth and its resources.
Students in this department are trained for exciting career opportunities in some of the fastest growing fields in the country. Participants range from entry-level students to already trained professionals. Highly qualified faculty and experienced students make this a rich learning opportunity.
The Kirsch Center for Environmental Studies commits to environmental protection as a fundamental objective and integral part of educating our students and the public. Through an interdisciplinary approach we will partner with industry, government, utilities and other academic institutions.
The new Kirsch Center for Environmental Studies is an opportunity to showcase energy efficiency and renewable energy technology and will be one of the first outstanding examples of a sustainable "green" building in the California Community College system. It will provide the momentum for other colleges to design and construct sustainable buildings as well as use these standards on renovation projects.
Environmental Planning & Management: The Program in Environmental and Water Studies includes Ph.D. research activities in environmental planning and management. This research is focused in two areas: (1) environmental policy implementation, and (2) management of water supply and wastewater disposal systems. Much of this research relates to policies and programs in developing countries.
Environmental Biotechnology: Researchers of the Stanford Environmenal Biotechnology program investigate and apply advanced principles of biology and engineering for the solution and prevention of environmental problems. A specific focus is the use of microorganisms to control the quality of groundwater, surface and waste water, and of coastal environments. The approaches of the multidisciplinary research team range from fundamental molecular studies to applied large field remediation projects. [partial list]

CESP began as a specialized research center within the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI) in September 1998. It evolved as an outgrowth of the more informal Global Environmental Forum, which had existed within FSI for nearly a decade. CESP is also an affiliated center of the Stanford Institute for the Environment (SIE). Formed in 2004, SIE is Stanford's principal initiative for assessing environmental science, technology, and policy at local, national, and global scales.
The Woods Institute for the Environment mobilizes faculty from all of Stanford’s schools to address the critical environment and resource problems of our age. [links to all Stanford environmental programs]
This emphasis provides students with an in-depth appreciation of the environmental and social dimensions of conducting business in a global market. Three aspects of sustainable business that improve a firm's long-term performance will be emphasized: managing risks (regulatory, reputation, litigation, market), values-driven leadership, and recognizing market opportunities created by environmental and social challenges. Learning outcomes include how to articulate the business case for sustainability, develop and lead internal and external coalitions needed to drive organizational change, and implement metrics for measuring progress and providing accountability.
The Master of Science in Environmental Management is designed for graduate students and working professionals who seek or hold careers in the environmental field.

The Environmental Studies Program is interdisciplinary in nature, reflects the current state of the field, recognizes the relationship between human behavior and nature in ecological issues, and responds to the Jesuit call to promote environmental justice and ethical stewardship of the natural world.
The undergraduate major in Environmental Science is an integrated interdisciplinary curriculum of basic science, designed to give students a broad perspective on the environment. Courses in the major concentrate on understanding the current environmental issues facing human society through a diversity of lecture, laboratory and field experiences. A degree with a major in Environmental Science from the University of San Francisco supports career options in a variety of areas including: technical and management aspects of air and water quality, hazardous waste management, environmental health, and energy, land use management and conservation of natural resources. This curriculum also provides the basic course work necessary for admission to graduate school programs. Electives may be used to enhance preparation for specific graduate programs.
Presidio School of Management offers an MBA program in Sustainable Management integrating social and environmental values within every course. Since 2003, the program has succeeded as a collaborative learning community committed to human, natural and financial sustainability.
