The Udall Foundation was established by the U.S. Congress in 1992 as an independent
executive branch agency to honor Morris K. Udall's lasting impact on this nation's
environment, public lands, and natural resources, and his support of the rights
and self-governance of American Indians and Alaska Natives. The 1998 Environmental Policy and Conflict Resolution Act
created the U.S. Institute for Environmental Conflict Resolution, now called the John S. McCain III National Center for
Environmental Conflict Resolution, as a program of the Udall Foundation to assist parties in resolving
environmental, public lands, and natural resources conflicts nationwide that involve
federal agencies or interests, and to provide training and capacity-building in collaboration, multiparty
problem solving, and conflict resolution. In 2009, Congress enacted legislation to honor Stewart
L. Udall and add his name to the Udall Foundation.
