Lab Mission

The Conservation Governance Lab seeks to answer several questions:

1) How is environmental policy made?

2) Who makes environmental policy and why?

3) How does environmental policy impact stakeholders and communities?

4) What makes environmental policy effective?

We are committed to providing a safe and positive environment for all of its members in their research endeavors. As team members, we trust each other to foster integrity and commitment towards all of our personal and professional goals.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Conservation Governance Lab is equally committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Innovation and creative problem solving comes from individuals of different races, ethnicities, genders, disability, statuses, nationalities, religious affiliations, sexual orientations and socioeconomic backgrounds working together. It is only by stepping out of our comfort zone that we are able to better understand the skills we each embody and utilize our shared experiences to voice unique perspectives.  The Conservation Governance Lab is committed to inclusiveness and providing opportunities that will assist students in having a global impact. We aim to fulfill our mission of cultivating culturally competent policy experts by attracting, developing, and retaining the best and brightest individuals from a diversity of backgrounds.
