Brown University will launch its Institute for the Study of Environment and Society (ISES) in the coming academic year. Environmental questions range in scale from molecular to planetary and demand research collaboration from many disciplines. The new center will draw on Brown’s strengths in environmental teaching and research to address those questions in a holistic way. ISES will provide an interdisciplinary home for faculty from Brown’s Population Studies and Training Center, the Superfund Research Program, and other projects.
