Organization Information

Mission Statement

The mission of the Onondaga Environmental Institute (OEI) is to advance environmental research, education, planning and restoration in Central New York. OEI seeks responsible stewardship of the local environs as a means to achieving the overall goal of sustainability. Philosophy: OEI recognizes that human life and ecological systems are inter-related and have intrinsic value; that ecosystem preservation is a moral imperative and collective responsibility, which depends on sound knowledge and conscientious dissemination and application of that knowledge.

Description

The OEI will lead and support research with application to its mission and of value to the public, governments, natural resource management and regulatory agencies, business, and industry. The OEI will engage the academic and scientific communities through collaborative, interdisciplinary investigations involving a wide array of subject areas. In particular, studies that monitor biota, soil, water, and air quality, or assess the fate and effects of biological, chemical or physical agents, stressors or ecological entities causing environmental perturbation will be used to evaluate implications, efficacy or risks associated with past, present or future anthropogenic activity. Research protocols and experimental designs must be technically sound, utilize current and traditional knowledge, and state-of-art technologies, follow professionally accepted practices or the scientific method, and provide data that are appropriate for evaluating the prescribed hypothesis. The OEI encourages publication of OEI funded research in the peer reviewed literature.
