  1. YSE, AmeriCorps Partner for New Scholarship Program

    The Yale School of the Environment has announced a new scholarship program for incoming students who formerly worked with AmeriCorps, a federal program that fosters civic engagement through service and volunteering to address poverty, the environment, education, and other unmet human needs.
  2. Future U.S. Conservation Leaders Named 2022 Wyss Scholars

    Three Yale students — Annie Miller ’23 MEM, Molly Ryan ’23 MEM, and Jane Jacoby ’24 MF/JD ’24 — have been named 2022 Wyss Scholars, a program that supports the graduate-level education of a new generation of leaders in U.S. land conservation.
  3. Celebrating the Legacy of F. Herbert Bormann

    Bormann, who taught at YSE from 1966-1992, was one of the scientists credited with the discovery of acid rain and his research was a major contributory factor towards the amendments to the Clean Air Act in 1990.
  4. Human-induced Disease Outbreak in Animals Causes Cascading Ecological Effects

    The increased spread of human-induced diseases to wildlife poses a growing challenge for ecosystem conservation. A Yale School of the Environment-led study that investigated the impacts of a mange outbreak that killed vicuñas in a protected area in the Argentine Andes found that it had unique effects on the ecology of the region.
  5. What is Driving Urban Land Expansion?

    Considerable research has been conducted on the growth of urban population, but very little is known about why urban land areas expand. In a recent paper, a YSE-led research team investigated the role of population and economic growth in affecting urban land expansion for more than 300 cities.
