At a Glance – Why we do it

The Mitchell Center offers affiliated faculty and students a tremendous opportunity to do cutting-edge research that is academically exciting and, at the end of the day, helps solve real challenges critical to Maine’s future and its residents. It is research that makes a difference, makes science better, and provides the opportunity to “be something larger than yourself.”

SilkaThe timing is right for solutions-oriented sustainability programs that are responsive to environmental and social needs, to student and faculty interests, and to opportunities in emerging career paths. At the Mitchell Center for Sustainability Solutions, we are deeply engaged in efforts to craft viable solutions at the intersection of social-environmental-economic challenges, and are confident that universities will become an increasingly vital and valued partner in the quest to create a sustainable world.
