Sustainability Minor

  • Educates through an interdisciplinary set of classes
  • Teaches students to be efficient and resourceful with today’s current resources
  • Helps students gain an understanding how to build and maintain a more sustainable society

This minor allows students to undertake an interdisciplinary program of study that focuses on sustainability. Sustainability has been defined by the United Nations as a way for humankind to “meet present needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs.” Fulfilling the requirements of this minor will help students gain an understanding of the complex issues surrounding present and foreseeable challenges to building and maintaining a more sustainable society. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of sustainability issues, this minor will compliment all major programs of study.
