Building on this foundation, we challenge you to actively work together to collectively prioritize our environment for present and future generations.

Students in the minor have worked on practical sustainability projects on a variety of topics: native plants, water quality, pesticides, soil quality, renewable energy, species conservation, and bicycle transportation.
