About the Earth Ethics Institute

Earth Ethics Institute opened its doors, as the Environmental Ethics Institute, in 1993 and has been a catalyst for introducing administrators, faculty, staff and students at Miami Dade College to a new way of thinking called "Earth Literacy."  Grounded in the profound implications of the story of the evolution of our 14-billion-year-old universe and the developmental process out of which the Earth and all life emerges, Earth Literacy fosters respect for Earth and life in all its diversity.

Earth Ethics Institute provides resources, workshops, and programs for the Miami Dade College community that encourages the integration of the knowledge, values and skills needed for a sustainable way of life into all practices and disciplines. EEI fosters an awareness of global interdependence, ecological integrity through biological diversity and the natural processes that sustain life.
