About Us

Mission, Strategies and Issue Areas

UEPI is a social change organization at Occidental College that connects ideas and actions to create a more just, livable and green society.

UEPI works both on the Occidental campus and in the community to fulfill this mission through four strategies: mobilize, innovate, connect and educate, and in line with three values: just, livable and green.

UEPI currently works in four main issues areas: food, transportation, built environment and globalization and we continue to explore new topics that fit with our mission and complement our other issues areas.

Our Staff

UEPI’s staff consists of professionals in the fields of public health, urban planning, law, public policy, non-profit management, and more.  Staff also work closely with the four professors in the UEP Academic Department at Occidental College, and with student interns.  Staff offices are divided between two locations, one at 2106 Colorado Blvd. and the other at 1882 Campus Road.
