- About IDCE
International Development, Community and Environment (IDCE) Department
The International Development, Community, and Environment Department (IDCE) is reflecting upon its first ten years as a formal department at Clark University.
IDCE is using this time as an opportunity to reflect critically upon what we have achieved in our first ten years and what we would like to do in the next ten. We aim to consider our mission and some of our key accomplishments, as well as to consider the future roles of interdisciplinary departments like ours focused on the intersections of engaged research and practice.
