Welcome to the Roberts Environmental Center

The Roberts Environmental Center (REC) seeks to contribute to the practical solutions of pressing environmental challenges through research and engagement with the private, public, and non-profit sectors. REC student analysts gain analytical and leadership skills through these efforts.

The principal goal of the REC is to involve students in real-world environmental issues and to train them to analyze the issues from as broad a perspective as possible, taking science, economics, and policy into consideration. Based in Claremont McKenna College, the Center strives to cultivate environmental leadership within its student body.
