Environmental Institute of Houston Logo

Since 1991, the mission of the Environmental Institute of Houston at University of Houston-Clear Lake has been to advance understanding of the environment through interdisciplinary research, education, and outreach 

The Environmental Institute Houston provides access to environmental information to the university and the community through activities, seminars and presentations that spotlight topics of vital importance to students, citizens, teachers and technical audiences.

Research and Environmental Education

Our research activities focus on water resources, wetlands, fisheries and wildlife conservation management. Institute scientists apply their diverse skills to examine environmental issues statewide and throughout the Gulf of Mexico. They deliver technical and scientific expertise, providing clarity to diverse environmental questions facing our region.

Educating students and community members about the environment is our primary objective. We provide technical assistance and professional development opportunities for educators, emphasizing environmental and science education by offering educator workshops for public and private schools, higher education, nature centers, parks and other environmental education providers. We invite you to learn more about EIH through our outreach programs that include public presentations, educational displays, lay-language reports and environmental data analysis.
