Sustainability Courses & Research

Sustainability education engages students in the work of building healthy, lasting communities. In sustainability courses, students develop the capacity to critically theorize, analyze and communicate about interconnected social, economic and environmental issues. Students learn to work in collaboration with members of the larger community and to help create solutions in the long-term public interest.  Sustainability research leads toward solutions that simultaneously support social wellbeing, economic prosperity, and ecological health.
