"Our aim is to attract students from many disciplines to the rich landscapes of Utah and the Intermountain West, which provide an ideal base for wide-ranging environmental and humanities study," Heidi Camp, assistant dean of the College of Humanities, said of the new center, which will be operated in cooperation with the International Center for Earth Concerns, a nonprofit conservation group.

"Not many classrooms include access to a place like the Red Rock Lakes National Wildlife Refuge," John Taft, an ICEC representative, said in the release. "Our collaboration with the U. ... melds perfectly with our intent to preserve the wild nature of this valley, as well as to make its wonders available and accessible to others through a first-class learning environment."

The center is offering four programs throughout the summer and fall that focus on in-depth environmental issues. For more information, visit ehec.utah.edu.
