Welcome to the Center for Environmental Policy and Management

Brownfields 1The Center for Environmental Policy and Management (CEPM) seeks to provide research and technical assistance to local, state, and tribal governments, businesses and nonprofit organizations regarding sustainable environmental policy and program development and evaluation.  The work of the CEPM is framed by attention to equity and just outcomes in policy making. Our goal is to increase the capacity of individuals and organizations to participate in equitable and just environmental decision making.
