How can organizations survive and flourish while remaining socially, environmentally and fiscally responsible? As a managing for sustainability major, you’ll gain the skills, knowledge and deep passion needed for achieving all three pillars of sustainability — environmental, social and economic.

Learn about sustainability and its connections to history, ethics, legal systems, goverments and the next scientific breakthroughs, and work closely with professors to offer expert insight on what their disciplines can offer to you to become a successful leader who can contribute to a sustainable future.

Sustainability is one of the foremost challenges facing humanity in the 21st century. All organizations, from businesses to governments to civic organizations, seek to generate value with finite resources. Economic sustainability can be achieved in the long term by realigning organizational strategies to become ecologically and socially sustainable. By taking courses related to environmental study, science, human behavior, design or engineering, managing for sustainability students possess the skills, knowledge, and passion to achieve sustainable environmental, social and economic goals.

Our Philosophy

We are all scholars here.  We have a duty to our profession, our society, and our students to engage in scholarship as a life-long search for new answers to intellectually vital questions. By our example as scholars, we teach our students the importance of an abiding curiosity and thirst for knowledge.

Students come first. We base every decision on what is best for our students, and though reasonable people disagree about what is "best," we do not accept decisions premised on any lesser standard.

The right to be authentic. We believe in allowing each faculty member the autonomy to express their uniqueness as teachers, scholars, and community members. The interplay among these diverse perspectives, rather than any one best model of pedagogy or scholarship, promotes learning, passion, and innovation.

Truly professional education. We are committed to our students' professional development. We define "professional" broadly to include technical competence, intellectual depth, and moral development. The truly professional manager is not constrained by narrow conventions but understands organizations, has the skills and creativity to lead them, and thinks deeply and responsibly about their impact on society.

Leave room for community.  Even in our autonomy, we are responsible to each other, to help each other achieve our professional goals and to work together in common cause. We value the fundamental trust and easy collegiality that we share.

As we are training the next generation of managers, I hope they see connections between disciplines and that they develop a genuine concern for social issues in the organizations where they work.
