Utah State University historically has maintained a reputation for its broad expertise and scholarship that explores how humans are linked to natural environments and what that means for society. The Center for Society, Economy, and the Environment (CSEE) provides opportunities for graduate students and faculty to draw upon and further develop that expertise. Programs include: enriched education opportunities and hands-on research experiences for students who are studying connections between social, economic, and environmental systems; a directory of USU expertise for use by scholars seeking research collaborators as well as by community, state, regional, and national agencies and organizations that need assistance with collecting, analyzing, or interpreting social and economic data; and a clearing-house of social science information for use by USU scholars as well as organizations and individuals in Utah and beyond. Participation in CSEE activities is open to anyone at the university, which is jointly housed and coordinated by faculty members in the departments of Applied Economics; Environment and Society; and Sociology, Social Work and Anthropology.
