The Sustainability Program is an immersive experiential learning environment where students explore how to live sustainably while developing real-world problem-solving skills and professional, career-related work experience. Sustainability is inherently interdisciplinary and we value diversity. We welcome students from all backgrounds, experience levels, and academic interests.
