Tribal Community Engagement

The Sustainability Initiative fosters interest in and dialogue about tribal community engagement on environmental issues at UC Irvine. In 2013, Angela Mooney D’Arcy (Acjachemen) coordinated this work on behalf of the Sustainability Initiative.  UC Irvine collaborators have historically included UC Irvine Law’s Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources (CLEANR), the American Indian Resource Program, and the Steele/Burnand Anza-Borrego Desert Research Center.

Recent projects:

Ms. D’Arcy also participated in a panel on “the unanticipated environmental consequences of renewable energy” during the First Annual Emerging Issues in Environmental Law, Policy, and Practice Symposium: The Collision of Energy Development and Environmental Laws, hosted by UC Irvine Law’s Center for Land, Environment, and Natural Resources on October 3, 2013.
