Environmental Research Institute

The Environmental Research Institute (ERI) is a research and public outreach wing of Vassar’s Environmental Studies Program. Its mission is to provide opportunities for faculty and students to conduct research on Earth’s environmental systems, to promote field work, and to foster engagement with the local community. To meet these goals, the ERI promotes and funds multidisciplinary research and education, hosts educational events and conferences, and acts as a bridge to the larger Hudson Valley community on environmental concerns.
