2024 Earth Day Message from President Khoury


As we celebrate Earth Day this year,

I am proud to lead a university that focuses on educating environmental stewards who believe, like all of us at Unity Environmental University, that every day is Earth Day. Unity’s commitment to affordable, accessible and flexible environmental education is more relevant today than any other time in our history. 

We must continue to use education, particularly environmental science education, to create a sustainable world for generations to come. We must break the cycle in which those most affected by climate change are too often those with the least ability to influence it. I have the privilege to lead Unity Environmental University which is on the front lines of teaching students from all walks of life what it means to be leaders in this the Environmental Century. Our students and graduates can, and are, affecting change on a local, regional, national, and global scale in the quest to achieve environmental sustainability for generations to come. 

Earth Day is a great reminder of just how much environmental sustainability matters, not just in the present, but also in the future state. Our modern world is one of integration, not just by technology, but with the environment. Everything we have and everything we consume impacts the world around us. Climate change is happening now, and it can no longer be seen as just a social or political matter – it is a complex matter. It touches natural and financial resources in countries around the globe and we must understand its complexities and nuances in order to fight it. While this seems like a monumental task, it is one I am certain can be achieved. 

Oftentimes we think that environmental sustainability is someone else’s job or think that as an individual cannot affect change. I don’t believe that is true. I believe that individuals can affect change and that Unity Environmental University graduates, current students, faculty, and staff are on the front lines of this fight. We are all making a difference, right here, right now and by working together we can build a more resilient, equitable and sustainable world.

For Earth Day 2024, Unity is recommitting to our mission of educating society in this the Environmental Century. We are recommitting to doing our part to teach those who are most affected by climate change how to deal with, and mitigate its effects, through sustainability science. Time is of the essence and the time to start is now. 

With Pride, 

Dr. Melik Peter Khoury
