A native America Indian tribe, the Nisga'a who believe that the earth is a bowl, or vessel where life and nature are shared and respected inspires the concept of this logo. The saguaro represents the southwest and a unique plant found only in this region. Beside the saguaro is a figure representing the student with a symbol depicting their journey. Next to the student is a plant with figures upon the leaves representing multiple environmental careers and a relationship between the students and the environment. The four leaves also represent the four year integrated program.
