Institute for Complex Integrated Environmental Systems

What are Complex Integrated Environmental Systems?

The behavior of integrated and complex systems cannot be predicted by understanding individual parts of the system in isolation, but instead emerges from the interaction between those parts. When studying complex and integrated environmental systems, it is essential that we include diverse expertise and perspectives, along with the ability to work as a team and accommodate new ways of thinking and mindsets.

Our mission is to create knowledge and facilitate relationships that lead to innovative and equitable solutions in environmental management by building a community of practitioners that value stakeholder engagement, actionable research, and professional development of the next generation of problem-solvers.

Who We Are

We are interdisciplinary individuals from across Boise State and practitioners from across Idaho who are seeking ways to integrate diverse types of knowledge to advance our understanding of complex environmental systems.
