Educating our students about the interconnectedness of environmental, social, and economic issues is an essential part of achieving our campus sustainability goals. Perhaps more importantly, it is vital for ensuring that our institution is sending engaged and thoughtful individuals into the world with the knowledge and skills they need to contribute to creating a more sustainable world.
