CHE's faculty members come from a range of departments at UW-Madison. Some call the humanities home, while others come from social or natural science fields. What CHE's faculty members share is a commitment to understanding environmental issues of the past and present from disciplinary perspectives beyond their own. To find out more about current members, you may review the CHE Faculty page and contact any of the people listed.
