TIE is located on the Medford Campus and its physical space is used by many students to study, work, and meet other students and faculty members. TIE holds and supports events for the environmental community throughout the year, and has facilities that can be utilized by anyone wanting to put up an event. TIE offers fellowships and travel grants and hosts guest researchers. We also support the Office of Sustainability in its efforts to improve campus sustainability.
