George Perkins Marsh Institute

The Marsh Institute allows students to conduct research on human-environment interactions and sustainability issues

Named after the man considered to be America’s first environmentalist, the George Perkins Marsh Institute is home to scholars and researchers studying human transformation of the environment and responses to this change. Located in the historic Norcross homes at the corner of Claremont and Woodland streets — the earliest and finest examples of Queen Anne style architecture in Worcester — the Institute is one of the most productive hubs for research activity and funding at Clark University.
