Signature Areas Overview

The Center for the Environment leverages the breadth of Purdue’s research and creative strengths from across the campus to address important and complex environmental challenges facing our local, state, national and global communities. These diverse disciplinary perspectives have come together in active collaborations described in our current “signature areas” of focus. Each signature area is led by a “Faculty Convenor” and represents an important community within the larger Center for the Environment.

The center also provides bottom up support to emerging interdisciplinary groups through a variety of opportunities including access to seed grants, assistance forming reading groups, and guidance with proposal development.
