Our planet is the ultimate complex system with many intertwined subsystems that envelop natural, social and technological systems and transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries. This visionary school engages wide-ranging national and international collaborations to advance the exploration of these systems and disseminate fundamental transdisciplinary knowledge through a unique set of academic graduate offerings.
