The Environmental Humanities Program centers community-engaged learning and scholar
activism for environmental and climate justice.
Our goal is to advance environmental justice in the West through humanities scholarship led by historically excluded scholars and frontline communities. In 2023, we received renewed funding from the Mellon Foundation to further this work. Through rigorous humanities research and reciprocal partnerships with grassroots groups, nonprofit, and frontline community members, the EH program is helping build an inclusive and equitable environmental movement that centers social justice and empowers rising leaders from communities most impacted by environmental degradation.
