What is Environmental Sustainability?

At IES, we share a passion for environmental sustainability.  While definitions of sustainability vary, they are consistent in consideration of both present and future environmental, social and economic facets.  We consider environmental sustainability through interdisciplinary research, scholarship, student learning, and community engagement.  We believe in collaboration both within MRU and with external partners to address often complex sustainability issues.  All of us connected with the Institute are dedicated to understanding and, where possible, improving environmental sustainability.

Our Commitment

The IES acts as a facilitator and catalyst for interdisciplinary research on sustainability. The IES is committed to engaging with students and researchers across the full spectrum of academic disciplines at Mount Royal University. We also aim to strengthen and expand our partnerships with industry, government and non-government agencies and institutions in the region.



The main goal of the Institute for Environmental Sustainability is to support multi and inter disciplinary research in environmental sustainability led by Mount Royal full time faculty. Faculty often include undergraduate Mount Royal student researchers on projects.These students benefit greatly from this experience with many continuing on to graduate school.
