Center for Southeast Asia Environment and Sustainable Development Approved

From the Interim Provost
I am happy to announce that Interim President Ponton has approved the establishment of the Center for Southeast Asia Environment and Sustainable Development, housed in the Geography and Planning Department.

The center’s mission is to improve the understanding of complex environmental and development issues facing the Southeast Asian region by fostering multidisciplinary, international collaboration in research, education, and capacity building. The director of the center will be Kim Irvine, professor of geography and planning; the center will report to the dean of the School of Natural and Social Sciences.
