Founded in 1963 as a private nonprofit organization, AEESP has grown to more than 700 members in universities throughout the world. The Association assists its members in improving education and research programs, encourages graduate education, and serves the profession by providing information to government agencies and the public, and provides direct benefits to its members.

The mission of AEESP is to assist its members in the development and dissemination of knowledge in environmental engineering and science. AEESP seeks to strengthen and advance the discipline of environmental engineering by providing leadership, promoting cooperation amongst academic and others within and outside the discipline, and serving as a liaison between its membership and other professional societies, governmental agencies, industry and nonprofit organizations.

Goals:
  1. To provide networking opportunities that foster a supportive environment for the professional development of its members.
  2. To develop long-range plans concerning education in environmental engineering, science, and related fields, and to implement these plans by working with professional scientific societies and fellow professionals in the public and private sectors.
  3. To assist its members in matters relating to the development of academic and research programs at individual institutions.
  4. To provide a forum for the review of graduate and undergraduate curricula, in order to enhance education n environmental engineering, science, and related fields.
  5. To provide assistance to state professional boards, civil service boards, and other groups charged with the licensing and regulation of environmental engineering practice and education.
  6. To work with other organizations interested in research and education in environmental engineering, science, and related fields.
  7. To establish an information service that keeps its members informed about developments in environmental engineering, science, and related fields.
  8. To promote communication about matters concerning the interest of the members and the functions of those pertinent professional and scientific societies in which members have professional interests.
  9. To assist public agencies, professional societies, and other groups, through advisory and consultative services, in the development of programs related to the education and research in environmental engineering, science, and related fields.
  10. To recognize outstanding achievement in research and education in environmental engineering, science, and related fields.

On December 5, 1963 twenty-one professors from 14 universities met in a Chicago hotel, acted on a motion and formed the organization that we know today as the Association of Environmental Engineering & Science Professor, AEESP. This original group of professors deliberated on and adopted bylaws and elected a board. To commemorate the 25th year anniversary of the organization, the Board of Directors commissioned a report to describe its history.
