The Center for Geological and Environmental Sciences

The goal of the Center for Geological and Environmental Sciences at Touro College is to identify the critical environmental and geological problems that face the world today, glean as much knowledge and information about them as possible and teach our students how to become professionals in these areas and how to find the solutions to these problems. The Center will realize this goal by focusing its attention on the timely and relevant scientific issues that have emerged as priorities on a national and global level and by concentrating its resources on these issues, so that our students will be immersed in the most current information and technology concerning these issues.
