The Environmental Center, a unit of Water Resources Research Center, coordinates the education, research, and service efforts of the University relating to the maintenance, protection, and improvement of the environmental quality in Hawai'i and the adjacent marine environment. It is a conduit for the transfer of interdisciplinary academic and research expertise in environmental matters from the University to the government, with a particular regard for public review processes established within the state's Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) laws. Its research program is highly interdisciplinary and focuses on issues of particular importance to improving environmental management decisions in the Pacific. The center works closely with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as well as other federal and state agencies in Hawai'i on many of its research contracts. For information on the environmental studies major or certificate program, see the "Colleges of Arts and Sciences" section within this Catalog.
