Environmental Education and Research Programs at State Universities.
Young, Roy A.
In an effort to obtain systematic information concerning environmentally-oriented instruction and research programs at state universities, the Council on Research Policy and Administration of the National Association of State Universities and Land Grant Colleges developed a questionnaire for this purpose. The objectives were to obtain information on (1) university organization for administration of environmental science academic programs, (2) instructional activities in environmental science areas, and (3) the nature and magnitude of interdisciplinary research progrqms currently operative. Responses from 85 out of 100 universities surveyed indicate that 62 have some sort of academic units established. Six listed a School of Environmental Science and seven listed a Department of Environmental Science. It was concluded most institutions apparently have developed interdisciplinary programs within their normal disciplinary school and department structure. The most frequently listed interdisciplinary research unit was Water Resources with 50 listings. Next most frequent was urban/regional planning (39), followed by air resources (29), marine resources (27), and environmental health (26). The largest units, based on the number of faculty and graduate students and dollar support, were Water Resources, Marine Resources, Urban and Regional Planning, and Environmental Health. Four tables tabulate the individual data. A sample questionnaire is not included. (BL)
