Sustainability Studies provides the tools to enable students to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. As students and teachers we create and shape a learning environment which balances environmental protection, economic vitality, and social responsibility thereby shaping a framework to provide the basic needs of health, food, water, shelter, and transportation. Sustainability Studies spawns experiential learning, research, and service activities to actively implement practical solutions to create a sustainable future now! In Sustainability Studies we want to empower students as innovators of sustainable strategies via entrepreneurial engagements, community engagement and environmental awareness. Sustainability Studies at UNM promotes and implements projects with synergistic activities to nurture community and help shape a culture of sustainability for the bioregion of the Southwest.
