The mission of the Ecosystem Science Center (ESC) is to promote understanding of ecosystem function through education and research at Michigan Technological University.

The Ecosystem Science Center (ESC) is designed to advance our understanding of how ecosystems function and how human activities influence ecosystem processes. The Center's two main objectives are to:

  • foster ecosystem research and
  • educate graduate and undergraduate students in the area of ecosystem science.

These two objectives will be met through collaboration among faculty, staff, and students interested in ecosystem science.
