Minors in Applied Sustainability are introduced to a broadly applicable problem-solving process that seeks to create whole systems solutions to environmental and social problems. Its hallmark is an inclusive, interdisciplinary, and collaborative approach that brings multiple perspectives together to make shared decisions. Building on a foundation of ecoliteracy and the practice of ecological design, students in the Applied Sustainability minor will be introduced to sustainability principles derived from a scientific understanding of how ecosystems operate though experiential engagement and practice. Focus is on developing an ethic of service and leadership, creative and collaborative attitudes and behaviors, excellent verbal and visual communications skills, and effective problem-solving skills.
