General

  • Mission:
  • The Center for Tropical Ecology and Conservation (CTEC) at Antioch University New England promotes the sustainable and just use of tropical ecosystems by training conservation leaders, conducting conservation research with partner organizations, and serving as an educational resource for the New England Community.

  • Overview:
  • Our objective is to help people find creative, long-term solutions to the rapid loss of biodiversity in the tropics. We do this by training the next generation of world environmental leaders who embrace the interdisciplinary nature of conservation through an ecological, social, political, and economic context.

    We operate in three main areas: Research, Education, and Student Support. We are actively developing programs and opportunities that will allow CTEC to bring together students and professionals from a variety of disciplines to address the complex problems of tropical conservation and sustainable use issues.

  • History:
  • CTEC was started in 2001 as a way to create a community of students and faculty members committed to social justice and sustainable development in tropical developing communities of the world. Since its inception, CTEC has hosted an annual symposium on a theme related to its mission, and has grown to a staff of six individuals. In 2005 CTEC was awarded the Campus Compact Award for its contributions to the community.
