Environmental Health and Conservation
Ecology and Management, One Health
Are you awed by the vibrant life, color, and beauty of the earth? Do you see the hand of God in his creation, and do you have a deep desire to care for it? We do, too.
We are motivated by this simple idea—that the health and well-being of both humans and the environment are deeply interconnected.
At Calvin, you’ll find a passionate group of faculty and students who are already at work with initiatives like Plaster Creek Stewards and the Calvin Environmental Assessment Program. You’ll do meaningful, résumé-building research on topics like stream restoration, invasive plants and species, environmental threats, and more. With all of the rich outdoor environments that Michigan has to offer, you’ll have a place to begin caring for and to call your own.
