Welcome to the Sustainability Initiative at UMass Dartmouth
Sustainability is the most pressing and far-reaching paradigm of the new millennium … the re-evolution of the 21st century. Not only does it touch on many aspects of social and bio-physical sciences, economics, business and policy-making, finding solutions to sustainability-related challenges requires a more intensely trans-disciplinary team approach than has been mapped-out for any other subject in history.
The Sustainability Initiative at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth serves as a catalyst for action, taking a leadership role in transforming academic and practical training, engaging in the community to further sustainability efforts, sponsoring sustainability efforts at the university and redeveloping our region for a sustainable future. It encompasses Sustainability Studies, the Office of Campus and Community Sustainability, and a Center for Green Jobs Training.
We look forward to hearing from you with any questions about the Sustainability Initiative at UMass Dartmouth.
