Featured Partner: Laurie Husted and the Office of Sustainability 

Laurie Husted is the Sustainability Manager at Bard’s Office of Sustainability (BOS). The mission of BOS is to enhance the sustainability of the College in its operations, academics, and outreach, while making Bard carbon neutral by 2035.BOS seeks to enhance Bard’s environmental, social, and economic capital while operating within the limits of the ecosystem. Primary work areas involve efficient transportation, flow of goods, and energy use. BOS fosters dialogue among community members, assesses new technology and industry best practices, coordinates projects, develops policy, and markets programs BOS strives to fully integrate environmental responsibility into its academic programs and research endeavors. This incorporates everything from safe disposal practices in the lab, to an emphasis on academic programs that train the next generation of environmental leaders. Many EUS majors are also EcoRepresentatives that work for BOS. For more information on BOS, visit their website.

Our Mission

Both biogeophysical systems and human societies (cultures, economies, political regimes) are nested complex systems involving numerous interactions. Environmental and Urban Studies (EUS) is a transdisciplinary program that examines the interdependence of human societies and the physical environment. The program strives to ensure that majors have a solid background in the physical sciences, the humanities, and economics and policy--and understand what sustainability means in the real world. We aim to enhance students' understanding of the complexities of environmental and urban issues and their awareness of interrelationships between built and "natural" environments.
