The mission of the Ecological Planning Center (EPC) is to advance planning in harmony with social, economic, and environmental systems to enhance the health and well-being of places and communities.

The EPC collaborates with university and community partners to provide leadership for improving the vitality, vibrancy, resilience, sustainability, and prosperity of our region and beyond.

The Center has four primary goals:

1. Emphasize the integration of human and natural systems in planning process, practice, and outcome

2. Focus on people as the main agents and beneficiaries of ecosystem change

3. Build upon the strong visionary tradition of the Greater Wasatch Region and facilitate collective envisioning for its future

4. Establish best practices, possibilities, and processes for communities anywhere to engage in ecological planning.
