EnviroLab Asia is a laboratory for cross-disciplinary research and experiential learning that links knowledge with practice. We aim to engage communities and explore what comes out of the intellectual exchange between the humanities and social sciences, environmental analysis, and various other fields to generate new scholarship about environmental issues in Asia. This is an initiative at the Claremont Colleges funded by the Henry Luce Foundation’s LIASE (Luce Initiative on Asian Studies and the Environment) Program, which focuses on East and Southeast Asia.
- Create a space for the production of new knowledge about the interaction between nature, the built environment, and human populations in Asia
- Utilize cross-disciplinary approaches
- Encourage 5C exchanges between and across campuses, utilize the current resources at the Claremont Colleges, and/or encourage community-building between and among 5C campus communities
- Increase faculty and students’ capacities to effectively influence debates on environmental issues as well as present innovative solutions to challenges resulting from environmental problems.
