Fall 2024

The courses listed below fulfill the requirements for the Sustainability Minor at UR. The minor in Sustainability includes two required courses and one course from each of the following groupings: Economic Sustainability, Environmental Sustainability, and Social Sustainability, plus an Acting for Positive Change Requirement.

The minor in Sustainability empowers students to shape a just and sustainable world through core concepts in systems thinking, justice, sustainability knowledge, integration, and acting for positive change. The sustainability curriculum follows the structure of the Triple Bottom Line Approach (Social/Equity, Economy, Environment/Nature) and includes consideration of the impacts of our actions, personally and collectively, on others, as well as a sense of self-efficacy to work toward improving conditions that foster well-being of people and the environment now and into the future. Inherent in the sustainability worldview is an understanding of definitions of sustainability and the complexity of sustainability challenges across cultures.
