Department of Environmental Science, Policy and Management, College of Natural Resources, University of California, Berkeley
Data Center Description
The mission of the Department of Environmental Science, Policy, and Management is to bring a diverse research, teaching, and extension capacity to bear on environmental problems from local to global scales. The biological, physical, and social scientists of the department are organized into three divisions based on similar disciplinary or topical research interests, but all work within the unifying framework of the analysis of environmental problems, and the development of management strategies to address them. Environmental problems demand increased understanding of social, physical, and biological systems, and the transfer of basic research findings through modeling, implementation, teaching, and extension. ESPM facilitates the cross-disciplinary collaboration necessary to address vital, contemporary questions.
