Mission Statement

The Center for Urban Environmental Sustainability (CUES) mission is to bring the knowledge available through Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey out into the "real-world" to address environmental challenges New Jersey faces.

CUES is unique because it is a collaboration between the departments of Landscape Architecture and Environmental Sciences, providing an opportunity to combine the best science, engineering, and design expertise to address urban environmental issues.

CUES provides expertise and research related to environmental and natural resources, human and ecosystem health, and community development. Through collaborations with faculty and students, CUES also provides educational opportunities for Rutgers students interested in environmental sustainability.
