Protecting our planet's water and other natural resources is vital to our livelihood. With your support, we can continue our commitment to use advanced technology and find sustainable solutions to major environmental challenges.
Endow a Chair
Our endowed chairs empower researchers to pursue ambitious projects locally and around the world. Chairholders - including Barley Chair Dr. Evelyn Gaiser and UNESCO Chair on Sustainable Water Security Dr. Mario Donoso - may use their funding to carry out comprehensive ecological monitoring, coordinate conservation efforts with international partners, and conduct other high-profile activities benefiting communities and the environment. If you would like to learn how you can endow a chair and elevate our work in another area, please contact the Institute of Environment Director Dr. Todd Crowl or the Advancement team.
