Ecology Institute

Accelerating Research, Inspiring Solutions 

The Penn State Ecology Institute brings together faculty, students, postdoctoral scholars, and stakeholders to foster innovation in ecology-based research and training. Our approach is deliberately interdisciplinary, drawing on diverse skills and perspectives. We also engage with other disciplines, including geosciences, geography, sociology, ethics, policy, decision analysis, economics, landscape architecture, and anthropology. Together, we are working to address the most defining challenges in contemporary ecology. Come see, come learn, come explore with us.
