Environmental Studies Institute
The Environmental Studies Institute (ESI) is a pioneer in academic offerings as well as in school-based advocacy. Its program is a synthesis of academic expertise, field projects, and service learning. As it implements the third thrust in the school's motto, Peace, Justice, and Integrity of Creation, the ESI catalyzes the Mriam Community in spreading to the larger society what it promotes in its campus--care for the Earth.
As an active player in the Philippine environmental movement, the ESI is a locus of activity and networking among those who champion sustainable development.
As a center of excellence for environmental studies and education, the ESI envisions the development of citizens and leaders, respectful of the sacredness of creation, which will work for an ecologically sound environment, equitable economic growth, and people empowerment as pillars of sustainable development.
