About ISE

Professor, Susan Powers working with a student in the aerobic greenhouse

The Institute for a Sustainable Environment sparks depth of thinking within our students as to how we can better our world and the world for future generations. With students and faculty like ours, we can keep our natural environment a beautiful place to live.

Our faculty and students work on a variety of campus, community and international sustainability projects and have received national accolades for projects ranging from electric snowmobiles to a high-tech campus greenhouse. Our commitment to sustainability has been shown through on-campus projects such as the anaerobic digester and the Ozzi Box container program.

When I was in China ... I had not heard of Clarkson until I searched online and realized what important faculty members are connected to the ISE (Institute for a Sustainable Environment). For instance, Prof. Philip Hopke — even my advisor knew of him. So Clarkson University became one of my goals to pursue. Now I'm sure that I made the right choice.
