At Bard CEP, we believe that combining critical inquiry and knowledge from academic disciplines with the expertise of frontline environmental practitioners will move us closer to achieving sustainable development. We give our students the tools to build a world where social justice, environmental protection, and economic growth go hand in hand. We believe that creation of good policy requires clear communication, teamwork, and leadership. This is the hallmark and the mission of our graduate program.
This is a pivotal time in history, when decisive environmental action can change the world. We invite you to join us as we take on the challenge of informed leadership in this extraordinary moment.
