About the Certificate
The Sustainability Certificate was officially approved for undergraduates in the spring of 2016 and graduates in the spring of 2017.
Increasingly, human and ecosystem challenges require sustainable solutions that recognize the interconnection between environmental limits and human values and well-being. The Certificate in Sustainability enhances opportunities for integrative, applied learning in interdisciplinary settings and prepares students to address difficult global sustainability issues. The certificate also works towards the University’s goal of incorporating sustainability into formal educational opportunities. Students across campus benefit from an understanding of the framework of sustainability and an opportunity to apply skills and learning to real-world solutions.
