There is growing recognition that human society must strive to live more sustainably given Earth's finite resources. To accomplish this task, many disciplines will be needed to achieve. To help prepare these students academically, the Department of Environmental Science announces the adoption of a new minor in Environmental Sustainability. The goal of the minor is to provide broad, interdisciplinary training from a sustainability perspective to identify and solve global environmental problems.
