The mission of Academic Sustainability Programs is to support and encourage interdisciplinary teaching and research programs that incorporate sustainability principles in all academic units on campus, and to enhance interaction between campus operations and academic activities in sustainability.

We provide services in 4 main areas:

  2. Support for teaching activities in sustainability, through faculty training workshops for curriculum development, and consultation and advising for faculty who incorporate sustainability principles in their courses
  3. Support for the development of interdisciplinary research programs and collaborations that include ideas and issues in sustainability, by students and faculty members
  4. Coordination with the Office of Sustainability and Facilities Management to enhance the use of campus operations as examples and projects in our courses and research, as well use our research and teaching activities to inform and support the development of sustainable operations on campus.
