Since its inception in 1968, the Faculty of Environmental Studies (FES) has established itself as a leader in interdisciplinary research and teaching on a wide variety of environmental themes and issues.

At FES, the environment encompasses natural, built, social and organizational environments. This broad definition of the environment is very much in evidence in the range of academic areas of interests that our faculty, postdoctoral fellows and visiting scholars pursue.

From environmental thought to environmental practice, from planning to international development, from native issues and gender issues to health and environmental science, indeed from almost anywhere on the spectrum of environmental meanings to almost any area of environmental policy and practice – you will find our faculty, postdoctoral fellows and visiting scholars.
