Institute at Brown for Environment and Society (IBES)


Formerly known as the Center for Environmental Studies, IBES offers Brown University students an opportunity to study environmental issues in depth by integrating several academic disciplines. Thesis writers are encouraged to analyze an environmental problem of importance to the local community. The Center is housed in the Urban Environment Lab, a superinsulated passive/ active solar retrofit on the Brown Campus.
