By virtue of its location in South Florida, FAU offers tremendous professional and educational opportunities in environmental science. Our six linked campuses are located within minutes of the Everglades and a host of major freshwater ecosystem restoration and water quality monitoring efforts, the Atlantic Ocean, and a low-lying metropolis grappling with the twinned challenges posed by burgeoning population growth and sea-level rise. FAU is poised to face these challenges with a growing and coordinated group of environmental faculty and students spanning multiple departments, centers, institutes, and colleges.
