Duke’s Nicholas School is a School of the Environment – not Environmental Sciences, or Environmental Studies, but the Environment. We strive for a new paradigm, one that views and attempts to understand the earth and the environment including humans as an integrated whole. And one that advances a more sustainable future by strategically focusing its resources on addressing the major environmental issues of our times and by training a new and environmentally-informed generation of global leaders.  To achieve this vision, the Nicholas School has assembled a unique and talented faculty of world-class researchers and educators spanning all of the relevant physical, life, and social sciences, steeped and actively engaged in their respective disciplines, but also committed to the multi- and interdisciplinary lines of inquiry and collaborations that are at the core of many environmental issues. nicholas.duke.edu
