undergraduatesEducation is the key to understanding the complex, interdisciplinary nature of environmental challenges, and ESI is uniquely positioned to help foster that education. Marshalling the institutional strengths of UT-Austin, ESI has taken the lead in environmental science education on campus, with new courses, degree and certification plans, and research opportunities that will help develop the minds that will explore and address this century’s environmental challenges.
