About the Certificate

Folks at Semester in Review

Increasingly, human and ecosystem challenges require sustainable solutions that recognize the interconnection between environmental limits and human values and well-being. The University of Georgia, in its 2020 Strategic Plan, outlines four specific Strategic Directions to which this certificate will directly respond. The Certificate in Sustainability will enhance opportunities for integrative, applied learning in interdisciplinary settings as well as prepare students to address difficult global sustainability issues. The certificate will also work towards the University’s goal of incorporating sustainability into formal educational opportunities. Students across campus will benefit from an understanding of the framework of sustainability and an opportunity to apply skills and learning to real-world solutions.
