Mission

In this century an understanding of sustainability will be critical for every person in a leadership role in every sector of society.

The College of Sustainability offers the opportunity for every Dalhousie student and professor to engage meaningfully with issues of Environment, Sustainability and Society.

The College of Sustainability provides an interdisciplinary, student-focused forum for collaborative teaching and learning driven by the pressing concerns of our time.  The curriculum incorporates team teaching, problem-based and experiential learning, hands-on internship opportunities, and a public lecture series.

Four interlocking conceptual pillars structure the College:

  • an interdisciplinary undergraduate programme;
  • a suite of graduate offerings (forthcoming);
  • a common place for interdisciplinary sustainability scholarship;
  • community engagement.
