The Institute’s Environmental Resource Program (ERP) connects UNC’s environmental community with local communities, classrooms, government agencies and businesses across the state.

By leveraging UNC-Chapel Hill’s extensive capabilities in environmental science to help build our partners’ capacity to support healthy communities. In partnership with community leaders and with funding from NIH, NSF, NCDHHS, NCDEQ and private foundations, the Institute directly engages more than 2,500 North Carolinians annually.
