Sustainability Innovation and Outreach Minor

Students minoring in Sustainability Innovation and Outreach will understand the foundations of sustainability practices, theory, history and policy. Using the perspective from two or more disciplines, students will make connections between the disciplinary domains that pertain to sustainability and integrate conflicting disciplinary insights and viewpoints. In addition, they will develop a basic understanding of systems approaches and application, learning about key leaders and organizations influencing sustainability; develop a working knowledge of sustainability assessment, decision making tools, and training methods; and develop professional and academic writing skills to support sustainability careers. Finally, they will develop and complete a research/service project with a sustainability theme that proposes a holistic solution.
