If we seriously consider the environment as that which surrounds us, we are compelled to know it, in all its natural, social, and cultural components. In the process, we learn about ourselves, who we want to be, and how to take care of this planet we call home.

Climate change, global warming, energy use, conservation - environmental issues of all kinds have long captured the attention of KU scholars. From business and economics to art and design; from geography and environmental studies to physics and world history, researchers in all disciplines are studying the short and long term influences of human interaction with the environment.
The resulting changes affect people worldwide and have inspired debate and action throughout history.
The KU Libraries is honored to showcase the work of KU scholars in its inaugural exhibition,
an Interdisciplinary Perspective.
