Mission Statement

The Sustainability Program trains students to become sustainability leaders in their local and global communities. Through engaged pedagogies that bring students out of traditional classrooms, students will learn how to identify problems, brainstorm solutions, evaluate potential consequences, and implement solutions to local and global problems. Students who participate in this program develop the skills and values necessary to effect positive environmental and social change in the world. The program fosters an interdisciplinary understanding of sustainability problems and solutions while providing students with hands-on experience of farming and other sustainability practices.
