The Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies has been at the forefront of bringing science to solutions for over 100 years. Our history is steeped in the kinds of path-breaking scholarship, practice, and impactful engagement that advance the solution of complex natural resource and environmental challenges, and our graduates become nationally and internationally renowned environmental leaders.
Today, we face an increasing and widely diverse array of environmental challenges – requiring ever greater levels of innovative scholarship and leadership. With a sense of urgency and a spirit of dedication, our School seeks to honor and expand on its historical strength and commitment to provide leading scholarship and impact across the full range of issues we address.
We present here an ambitious Strategic Plan that strives to meet these challenges over the next 3-5 years, and beyond. Our Vision, Mission, and the Strategic Plan are grounded in our Core Values and Guiding Principles, and undergird our framework for efforts going forward.
