The Environmental Leadership Program is part of the University of Oregon Environmental Studies Program. We provide graduate and undergraduate students an opportunity to team up with government agencies, non-profit organizations, and local businesses to work on real-world environmental monitoring, mapping, and education and outreach projects. Our projects offer students capstone learning experiences that put into practice the principles, knowledge, and skills they are pursuing in their academic work.
