One of the core components of the Center’s mission is to educate the future leaders of tomorrow about the regional and global environmental issues and concerns that will confront the citizens of Michigan in the 21st century. Thus, we emphasize hands-on experiential learning regarding ecological and geological processes and patterns whenever possible, whether it is via coursework, field labs, undergraduate and graduate research, or student-led associations.
