Graduate Program in Ecology, Evolution, Environment and Society

Ecology, Evolution, Environment & Society (EEES) is a new vision for scholarship, education, and service that matches the challenges of this new era, the Anthropocene, in which the ecosystems that sustain us are being altered more rapidly than ever before in the history of human existence. In the 21st century there is need for a new social contract where scientists work in interdisciplinary settings and actively contribute to humanity's efforts to ameliorate and adapt to the rapidly emerging challenges of the Anthropocene. Dartmouth is well positioned for these changing roles due to its tradition of international leadership in the natural sciences and interdisciplinary environmental studies. This program is designed to train top young scholars to conduct innovative basic research while promoting capacity for integrating natural and social sciences to address the socio-ecological challenges of the 21st century.
