What is Sustainability?
Throughout the sustainability course guide we refer to courses either as sustainability focused or sustainability related. But what does "sustainability" really mean? The term sustainability can mean many different things; there is no one, simple definition. However, for the purpose of this project we referred to the most widely quoted definition of sustainability provided by the United Nations. They view sustainability as "meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." This compiled list of sustainable courses represents the courses that teach concepts relating to or focusing on sustainability, chose by us, reviewed by professors and approved by department heads.
