Sustainability in Higher Education

A growing number of individuals and institutions in higher education are taking a leadership role in preparing students and employees to achieve a just and sustainable society. The campus itself should serve as a model of sustainability, with curriculum and operations reflecting an integrative approach to learning and practice. The process of education should emphasize active, experiential, inquiry based learning and real-world problem solving.

On the model campus all sectors will work collaboratively to advance sustainability, and the content and context of learning will reflect a focus on systemic, interdisciplinary thinking with respect to human health, ethics, future generations, and planetary stewardship. The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education ([AASHE]) is one organization with a vision to create a sustainable society.
