New Jersey School of Conservation

The New Jersey School of Conservation (NJSOC) is the environmental field campus of Montclair State University. NJSOC is the only university research station in New Jersey that is located in upland temperate forest habitat, and is thus an important site for investigations of biological processes and organisms in a heavily urbanized state. NJSOC’s mission is to contribute to the resolution of environmental problems by cultivating environmentally responsible behaviors that will encourage scientists, teachers, students and citizens to promote sustainable practices in their communities.

The mission of the Passaic River Institute is to further environmental research and education and to seek solutions for environmental problems within the Passaic River basin of Northern New Jersey. PRI research projects include the study of contaminant biological uptake, regional toxicity, pollutant fate, transport and distribution, and ecosystem degradation and restoration.

The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (ISS) at Montclair State University was founded in 2009 to foster interdisciplinary research and education to address the relevant sustainability issues of our time. The Institute’s efforts focus on human interactions with the natural environment in urban settings.
