For 50 years the Rubenstein School has prepared environmentally and socially responsible leaders, scientists, practitioners, and advocates.

Our science-based curriculum recognizes the interdependence of people and healthy ecological systems. Rubenstein School programs focus on experiential learning and inspire students to apply knowledge to real-world projects. Our graduates gain the skills needed to make change and resolve complex environmental challenges.
