Global Change and Sustainability Center

 The Global Change and Sustainability Center originated as a faculty-driven initiative to bridge disciplinary silos and facilitate interdisciplinary research on dynamics and adaptation in ecological systems, climate systems, sustainability, and interrelated impacts between global changes and society. After Geology and Geophysics Professor, Dr. Brenda Bowen, became the Director of the GCSC in 2015, the College of Mines and Earth Sciences generously provided space for a GCSC office in FASB.
