About Us

Our Mission

To study the behaviors, stresses, and sustainability of Earth's natural system at multiple scales. This is accomplished through active collaboration, interdisciplinary research, graduate education and public outreach.

TIE3s is a Ph.D.-granting research institute, established in 2007 as an outcome of a major strategic initiative by Baylor University. The institute is an outgrowth of the recognized need for interdisciplinary research and non-traditional graduate student training to address the most challenging problems facing ecosystems and the environment.
