In an ever increasing changing and challenging world, you not only have to be willing to change but you sometimes must be the one to lead the change. Starting in Winter 2013, students can now sign up for Introduction to Sustainability (SUS 201). This class will lay the foundation, using a very hands on model, to create sustainability in a variety of different areas from culture to business to politics and back again. If you’re interested in changing the world, changing your town, or even changing your neighborhood, this class is for you!
From the class description:
This course will provide an overview of the principles and practices of sustainability, with an emphasis on the components of the triple bottom line: Economic stability, Social equity, and Environmental viability from a systems perspective. Course will be taught with a focus on collaboration and student involvement in projects. Students will be introduced to information from a number of different academic areas such as biology, chemistry, sociology, economics and political science.
