Mission Statement

CREST brings together Cornell faculty and graduate students and other Ithacans who are committed to interdisciplinary environmental studies.  It is built on the premise that complex environmental issues can best be understood through familiarity with diverse perspectives–including those of the humanities, arts, social sciences, natural sciences, physical sciences, and every other kind of science.  We strive to foster open communication, close collaboration, and new thinking about the ways in which our “green” scholarly pursuits relate to our teaching and our political commitments.
