FSU promotes engagement in sustainability-related learning experiences across the curriculum
Educating students is the primary function of our institution. By training future leaders, scholars, workers, and professionals, we are uniquely positioned to prepare students to understand and address sustainability challenges. These efforts will help develop successful graduates that are prepared for 21st century careers.
Sustainability challenges are highly complex and cannot be solved in traditional ways or by simple solutions. At FSU, students and faculty examine these challenges from environmental, economic, and social perspectives. Sustainability education and research highlight the intersections of these three perspectives and the influence each system has on another.
Sustainability provides a scope for the creation of innovative, interdisciplinary, and collaborative educational experiences. Innovation and new discoveries are found by juxtaposing research, methods, and insights from different fields onto each other. Today, sustainability education and research can be found across campus in fields of science, business, policy, engineering, and more. This creates new opportunities to build partnerships, enhance the student learning experience, and increase community engagement.
