We take a "whole system" approach
We believe in creating frameworks in which individuals, organizations, and societies can "thrive in perpetuity"1. Using a combination of tailored courses and applied challenges, we explore creative and innovative solutions to wicked problems, including social responsibility, resource use and environmental services, organizational change management, and supporting the long-term economic growth of our communities.
As global economies evolve and populations increase, the Minor in Sustainability through the College of Innovation and Design prepares students for the enhanced management of social, environmental, economic, and cultural resources. In a complex world, sustainable growth requires understanding not only your environmental resources, but your social and economic stakeholders as well.
