We celebrate 50 years of interdisciplinary problem solving and training students to make a difference in the world as environmental professionals. Our Master's program continues these traditions, and we are now growing in our undergraduate programs as well. As I have met more and more alumni over the past few years, I am filled with such pride in being part of an organization that has contributed so much to Miami, Oxford and the world."

- Jonathan Levy, IES Director

Join us to meet with fellow alum, former and current faculty, and current students as we remember our accomplishments and look ahead to our future.
