A core staff of employees work in the Schermerhorn building on the Morningside Campus of Columbia University, but the center functions as the result of many partnerships and collaborations across the Earth Institute, the university, New York City and the world. It is the people involved in our many projects who make achieving our goals possible.

In addition to the staff and researchers listed in this section, there are thousands of people who are part of the center’s community: students from K-12 education to the undergraduate and graduate levels; professionals prom public and private sectors, civil society, as well as, concerned citizens.
