At UEP we embrace the inextricable links between social, economic, and environmental challenges and we recognize the value of moving society toward the development of sustainable communities in a just and equitable manner while respecting the limits of supporting ecosystems. Our students have ample opportunities to integrate the study of sustainability with policy, planning, and practice in Field Projects, faculty research and coursework. Sustainability recognizes the connections among agricultural and food systems, energy production and consumption, transportation, built environments, resilient infrastructure and community economic development. The university’s strengths in climate change, renewable energy, and water create opportunities for learning across disciplines.
