The Institute of Environmental Sciences was created in 1969, in response to "the urgent need for a new program which is truly interdisciplinary in structure… and which contains a curriculum geared to train a modern environmental scientist equipped with the tools and philosophy to cope with new problems as they arise." Since the first class of students entered the M.En. program in 1971, IES has graduated more than 640 M.En. students. In 2010, the IES was renamed the Institute for the Environment and Sustainability to reflect its new role as an umbrella institute for education and research on the environment and sustainability at Miami University at the undergraduate and graduate levels. For more information, visit the institute's website.
