Chair and Professor: Dr. Jacques Rinchard
Environmental problems are among the most urgent issues facing our civilization. In order to manage Earth's environment effectively, we must understand the processes that shape the Earth's surface, control the chemistry of our air and water, and produce the resources on which we depend. The Department of Environmental Science and Ecology at the College at Brockport offers five concentration areas and two minor degree programs.
The Department of Environmental Science and Biology was created in 2002. In 2017, it changed its name to the Department of Environmental Science and Ecology to better reflect its mission and areas of expertise.
