A Global Vision

ERG is a world-renowned program with a 40-year history of outstanding research, education and engagement with government, industry, and civil society at all levels. Our students learn to harness knowledge from the field and the classroom, emerging as leaders of change in the face of global resource and society challenges. They learn by being in the world that “data” is not a synonym for “people”, and that no problem gets solved with one perspective. ERG is a small unit, but we have a global presence guided by a commitment to social justice and environmental consciousness. From community meetings in Tanzanian villages to hearing rooms in Washington, and from the California Public Utilities Commission to national governments offices in Nepal, ERGies are working towards creative and enduring transformations.
