Arts and Humanities in the Environment was a programming series that celebrated the vibrant and diverse contributions the arts and humanities make toward our understanding of the environment by gathering writers, artists, and scholars who addressed in their work the question of our place in the world.

Cosponsors for this program included the American Indian Science & Engineering Society, the American Indian Studies program, the Colleges of Design, Education, Family & Consumer Sciences, and Liberal Arts & Sciences, the Committee on Lectures (funded by GSB), the departments of English, Foreign Languages and Literatures, Philosophy and Religious Studies, and World Affairs, the program for Latino/a Studies, The Leopold Center, and the United Native American Student Association.
