Jonathan Overpeck, one of the nation’s leading experts on climate change, joined U-M in June as the inaugural dean of the School for Environment and Sustainability. SEAS grew from the former School of Natural Resources and Environment and was created to further advance the university’s global leadership in sustainability and environmental research and education. With its porous boundaries, SEAS provides leadership and works collaboratively with other schools, institutes and programs at the university to develop solutions to the most challenging global sustainability issues facing society.
