On February 18th, 1969, just a few weeks after the Santa Barbara Oil spill, a group of twenty-one faculty, calling themselves The Friends of the Human Habitat, met to discuss the possibility of promoting some form of environmental education at UCSB. By the fall of 1970 the Environmental Studies Program was established, one of the first of a new breed of educational programs in the country.
Four decades later, the Environmental Studies (ES) Program at UCSB still holds true to its goal of a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach to education while simultaneously evolving and adapting to meet the challenges of an ever changing world, both academically and environmentally. Today, with more than 700 enrolled students and over 5,000 alumni actively working to preserve and protect our environment, the ES Program at UC Santa Barbara is considered one of the oldest and most successful undergraduate environmental programs in the world.
