International College of Practice and Education for the Environment

Building on the decades-long efforts of Chang Jung Christian University (CJCU) in environmental protection and environmental education, the International College of Practice and Education for the Environment (ICPEE) was established in autumn 2016, and Dr. Jane Goodall agreed to serve as Honorary Dean.

In spring 2017, CJCU, in cooperation with the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI), established the International Program for Sustainable Development (IPSD) within the ICPEE. The JGI would recommend selected International students from developing countries to participate in the program. The strengths of IPSD are a focus on action learning, student-based practical modules, and the year-long Roots and Shoots internship. We hope to cultivate international personnel who are dedicated to sustainable development and social progress, in both a local and international context.
