THE AIMS OF THE BYU environmental science program are to provide students with experiences that are spiritually strengthening, intellectually enlarging, and character building that lead to lifelong learning and service. Addressing environmental issues with sound scientific principles and reasonable solutions is at the core of our teaching and research. As LDS scientists and students we embrace the concepts that the earth and its resources are for the benefit and use of man and need to be carefully managed as part of our stewardship.
