Taft Nicholson Center for
Environmental Humanities Education


As an official extension of the University of Utah campus, the Taft-Nicholson Center works to bridge the arts and humanities with the sciences. Our mission is to increase environmental literacy, boost environmental awareness and inspire personal connection to nature. Students, teachers, artists, scientists and community members participate in the Center’s diverse educational programming––sharing their perspectives on the natural world and preparing themselves to impact change in positive and meaningful ways.
