Strategic Plan

Guided by our storied history, we face today’s environmental challenges with a renewed commitment to groundbreaking scholarship, practice, engagement, and leadership.

    For more than a century, the Yale School of the Environment has been at the forefront of turning science into solutions. We’ve built upon our historic strengths in forestry and land management, developing a more comprehensive and rigorous curriculum that combines environmental science and sustainability with business, law, policy, energy, and natural resources. When our students graduate, they are already nationally and internationally renowned environmental leaders.

    With more diverse and increasingly urgent environmental challenges upon us, we continue to follow our mission and vision — promoting knowledge and leadership for a sustainable future for all people. Our ambitious Strategic Plan provides the framework for how we will meet these challenges — in the immediate future and beyond — through innovative teaching and learning in the environmental field.
