WWU’s Huxley College of the Environment is the oldest environmental college in the nation and a recognized leader in producing the next generation of environmental stewards. Huxley’s distinctive, interdisciplinary curriculum reflects a broad view of the physical, biological, social, and cultural world, and has earned international recognition for quality.
As a student-centered college, we strive to provide rigorous academic training and experiential learning opportunities for our Environmental Studies and Environmental Sciences majors, minors, and graduate students.
Huxley College fully subscribes to the values contained within the existing WWU Strategic Plan. We are committed to excellence, engagement, diversity, community service, integrity and innovation.
Huxley College was founded more than forty years ago as a pioneering effort to focus attention on the environment. It was based on the premises that the study of the environment is holistic and transcends disciplinary boundaries and that our reach is global, even when the problems we address are local. The nature of our college demands a more specific elaboration of the unique values that create the environment of engaged excellence in Huxley College.
- Collaboration: We collaborate within the college, with other units in the university and with the larger community in solving environmental problems.
- Application: We apply our teaching and learning to the real world.
- Problem orientation: We engage students, faculty and staff meaningfully in the analysis and solution of pressing environmental problems.
