The Center for Environmental Economics promotes research in environmental economics and provides a community for scholars (faculty, graduate students, and others) interested in various topics on environmental economics. Research is organized by various Programs under the umbrella of the Center.

During the academic year the Center hosts a weekly workshop at noon on Mondays for work at various stages of completion to be presented. While most presentations are by locals, visitors from other campuses also are invited from time to time to present their recent work. Graduate students are especially encouraged to present their research from initial idea to final product. Information about recent and upcoming workshops/seminars may be accessed here.

Additionally, the Center co-sponsors campus-wide speakers on environmental economic topics.
