Research & Initiatives

While research and teaching are typically conducted by faculty in individual departments and programs, the IES is the portal through which collaboration occurs between departments and other colleges on environmentally-related projects. For example, the TCU-NextEra Wind Research Initiative is coordinated out of the IES with faculty from other departments (for example, biology) and other universities (for example, UCLA and Oklahoma) working on individual projects within the broad framework of the wind initiative. Likewise, at our research station in Costa Rica, students in environmental science and biology carry out field-based research, but we also run programs through study abroad where students from across campus can engage in ecologically-based fieldwork.
