The Taft-Nicholson Center focuses on engaging the arts, humanities and sciences to deepen and enliven environmental study, further preparing students to impact change in positive and meaningful ways. We educate future environmental leaders to challenge existing environmental thought and expectations. The Center allows students and faculty to go beyond the traditional classroom experience, taking their classroom knowledge into the field to expand their area of study. Students are asked to apply what they learn in Centennial Valley to practical solutions for real-world ecological problems.
We invite you to join us in this important work. Donors to the Center support innovative workshops, student/participant scholarships, artist-in-residence fellowships, and diverse programs and coursework.
