The overarching goal of CGCEO is to contribute to the understanding of the interrelations among human, land, and climate systems in an international context, as reflected in MSU’s Boldness by Design. Building on existing strength in interdisciplinary approaches to understand the social processes, land use and land cover patterns and processes, and environmental impacts and responses at regional to global scales, the Center addresses the following key science questions:
How are social processes altering and impacting global environmental dynamics? How do these changes, in turn, respond to and affect land and human systems?
The research activities at the Center attempt to identify, understand and model land surface processes; determine and quantify socioeconomic root causes of and responses to global change, and assess human/animal health and ecosystem services.

The Michigan Sea Grant partnership promotes understanding and intelligent use of the Great Lakes. It addresses Great Lake issues to help Michigan citizens protect and enjoy the nation’s extensive freshwater resources. Current areas of research include fisheries, coastal erosion, river restoration, and exotic species. Extension agents located in coastal communities around the state actively assist residents, decision-makers, and resource managers in resolving problems, recognizing opportunities, and broadening understanding of the Great Lakes.
