Clarkson University establishes a new environmental institute.

Clarkson University has recently shown its commitment to environmental excellence by creating “The Institute for a Sustainable Environment.” The institute marks the creation of two new programs for undergraduate students:  Environmental Health Science and Environmental Science and Policy.

The Institute will double as an umbrella organization, housing the Center for Sustainable Energy Systems (CSES) and the Center for Air Resources Engineering and Science (CARES).

CSES unites faculty and scholars at Clarkson who are currently conducting research on renewable energy and uses their collective clout to gain national attention and receive funding. CARES brings together the expertise of air sampling/analysis, receptor modeling, atmospheric deposition and computational fluid dynamics to improve the scientific basis for air quality management.
