An understanding of sustainability requires an interdisciplinary lens to bring together information from the natural sciences, social sciences, policy, and business fields. Sustainability issues explored in this course include food (and hunger), environmental (social) justice, natural resource management (including energy and water resources), and climat change (it's causes, effects, and science-, economic- and policy-based mitigation strategies). These issues are global in nature; while many of the problems faced in the natural world ignore political boundaries, the solutions and effects may differ within and between developed and developing nations. The course has two major foci: (1) to introduce students to the notion of a sustainable lifestyle and promote that lifestyle on campus, and (2) to examine current topics in sustainability at the regional, national and global scales. The Service Learning Component requires each student to engage in a service activity on campus (off-campus activities may be possible) and produce a Service Learning journal.
