Sustainability and Environmental Programming Survey

Thank you to everyone who responded to our program survey. We received nearly 250 responses, and are making use of your input to develop new programming directions in the Sustainability and Environmental area. Check back for more information.

The topics that make up the environment and sustainability certificate and diploma programs are interdisciplinary in nature, and interest in sustainable practices is permeating all areas of society. As a result, you will often see our sustainability courses and programs linked with other topics such as health, economics and social justice. Our Sustainability and Environment courses and programs are grouped into five areas of focus: Ecological Restoration, Environmental Issues, Environmental Thinking, Sustainable Design, and Sustainable Food.

Success takes shape for our learners
