EnviroLab Asia is designed to facilitate interdisciplinary communication and collaboration. It aims to train students, faculty, and staff to become active practitioners of change who develop sustainable and socially just policy-relevant solutions to environmental challenges in Asia, with a focus on East and Southeast Asia. EnviroLab Asia strives to foster a process of mutual discovery, where we work together with international and regional partners to study, test, and evaluate methods and measures to address environmental problems in Asia.
EnviroLab Asia is a five-college initiative at the Claremont Colleges, and is anchored at Claremont McKenna College.
EnviroLab Asia would also like to acknowledge the the Henry Luce Foundation as well as the continued support from the Presidents and Academic Deans at the Claremont Colleges. During its inaugural year, EnviroLab Asia also received critical support from the CMC History Department, the Mirian Miner Cook Athenaeum, Roberts Environmental Center, CMC Modern Languages and Literatures Department, Keck Science Department, Asian Studies, and Pomona Asian Languages and Literatures Department.
