Meet the Future
Climate change. Food access. Water quality. The world needs bold leaders willing to take on urgent environmental issues more than ever. At SEAS, we're focusing on the future - transforming research into action to create a healthier planet for all.
Fish smoking in coastal Ghana linked to high pollutant exposures, elevated health burden
U-M researchers and their colleagues looked at the air pollutant exposures and health symptoms experienced by fish smokers in two coastal cities in the West African nation of Ghana. The researchers found that exposure to both carbon monoxide and particulate matter (specifically, small airborne particles called PM2.5 that include soot, smoke and dust) was 2.6 times greater among fish smokers than in the control group.
Game changers in action
Kat Superfisky (BA ’07, MS/MLA ’13) - Urban Ecological Design Game Changer
“To me, Los Angeles and its river provide the perfect laboratory for exploring how to rebuild cities—humans’ new natural environment—into more inhabitable places.”
Jiayi (Angela) Wan (MUP/MPH ’15) - Health Impact Game Changer
“The health impacts of climate change have been an understated part of the climate change discussion.’”
José González (MS ’09) - Community Game Changer
One of the core values of this school is the interdisciplinary nature of the curriculum—which helped me to see that environmental conservation work isn't just about the natural sciences. It isn't just about the ecology. It's fundamental to understand what we're conserving, and why we're conserving it, and that the whole of the biosphere is important for us.

"To be a black person is to come from a long bloodline of survivors and storytellers, with a resilience that people can't even comprehend." - Lena Waithe
In SEAS's commitment towards decolonizing and creating a more equitable world, we want to acknowledge and rectify the erasure and minimization of black and indigenous environmentalists in conservation. We commit to promoting prominent black environmental historians and authors through our coursework and programming.
