The Institute’s Center for Public Engagement with Science 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, we 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.
