Welcome to the McCullough Institute

The McCullough Institute for Conservation, Land Use and Environmental Resiliency aims to be a national model for blending environmental study with business and sustainable economic growth in urban and rural landscapes.

The institute’s goals include working with faculty to develop certifications in environmental studies and policy as added professional credentials to degree study for UNC Asheville’s students. Our four areas of focus are land use and conservation; urban planning; sustainable agriculture; and resilience and environmental sustainability.
