High Meadows Environmental Institute ‒ HMEI
Princeton, NJ, United States

The High Meadows Environmental Institute is the interdisciplinary center of environmental research, education, and outreach at Princeton University. HMEI's mission is to advance knowledge and to develop the next generation of leadership by providing outstanding academic programs and opportunities for advanced scholarship, research, and civic engagement. HMEI draws its strength from 90 members of the Princeton faculty, representing more than 25 academic disciplines, whose research and teaching focuses on the scientific, technical, policy, and human dimensions of environmental issues. HMEI functions as a central resource for faculty, post docs, students, alumni, and others with interests in environmental topics. HMEI's research interests are distinguishable from other environmentally focused research activities at Princeton as endeavors involving faculty and research affiliates work across disciplinary lines. HMEI's principal research centers address complex issues surrounding global change; energy and climate; biogeochemical cycles; molecular geochemistry; biodiversity; conservation; environmental science and policy; infectious disease and global health; and sustainable development in impoverished and resource-challenged regions of the world.
