 Mission and Vision

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program

The Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment and Social Justice supports people working to protect our planet and ensure justice for those who inhabit it.

With a dedicated focus on our core causes, we invest funding in education and scholarship, University-community partnerships and cross-cutting initiatives, such as our current Next Generation Communication Initiative, all through a remarkable endowment from philanthropist and scholar Agnese Nelms Haury.

Our program funds work that improves social justice (justice regarding the distribution of financial, social, political and human capital, opportunities, and privileges within a society) while simultaneously addressing environmental sustainability (such as climate change, pollution, natural resource degradation, and loss of biodiversity).
