This community collects the student work, theses, presentations, and faculty research from the EIU Sustainability Program.
Our graduates in the Sustainability program are equipped to accept the challenging mission of achieving sustainability for the global, social, economic and environmental systems that meet both present and future needs. Out program is management and leadership focused to empower students to develop advanced knowledge and skills. In order for the Earth to continuously support human lives, we must achieve sustainability for the global social, economic and environmental systems that meet “the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.” Our future is dependent upon the generations of people who are educated and prepared for leading the challenging mission. This program allows students to focus on Energy Management, Natural Resources, Social Practices and Community Engagement, or to explore electives in sustainability in order to create a pathway of knowledge to best prepare them for their future career.
