Sustainability Curriculum

The College recognizes the importance of sustainability literacy, which according to the United Nations is “the knowledge, skills, and mindsets that allow individuals to become deeply committed to building a sustainable future and assisting in making informed and effective decisions to this end.”

Sustainability literacy is promoted via two course designations. The first is the Sustainability Designated (SD) course list, which highlights courses that have adopted a moderate-to-strong emphasis on sustainability content. The second course designation is the SUS prefix, which identifies courses that were created with a specific and central focus on sustainability. Sustainability course designations are intended to meet student and community needs and interests, and to create a more just and equitable world. Many SD and SUS courses also fulfill general and discipline studies requirements (e.g., health, cultural literacy, social sciences, and science lab).
