Welcome to REM!
The School of Resource and Environmental Management (REM) at Simon Fraser University (SFU) offers programs at the undergraduate (major and minor) and graduate (MRM, MRM Planning, and PhD) levels. REM is widely recognized as one of Canada’s top schools in its field. The School is part of the Faculty of Environment and is located in Burnaby, British Columbia, Canada.
Through integration of the biophysical and social sciences, and an understanding of complexity and systems thinking, students are provided with the knowledge and skills to identify and understand environmental challenges and to contribute to solutions. Environmental problems cannot be solved based only on narrow research conducted in single disciplines. Instead, solutions emerge from interactions among people drawn from both the social and natural sciences. REM therefore provides the opportunity to learn key aspects of the numerous disciplines that are essential for solving environmental problems.
