The Berkeley Institute of the Environment Fund


The Berkeley Institute of the Environment (BIE) brings together and helps enhance in new and innovative ways campus programs and research units that focus on the environment.

The Institute’s goals are to address complex environmental problems by:

  • Making research tools and understanding accessible across disciplinary lines
  • Fostering collaboration and new ways of thinking about critical environmental problems across disciplines
  • Training a new generation of environmental researchers, citizens and professionals.

Through its initiatives the BIE seeks to confirm Berkeley as the premier institution in environmental theory, understanding, actions and solutions.
