Sustainability Curricula at ISU

Starting in Fall 2014, ISU students can graduate with a minor in Sustainability! A recent Arizona State University study indicates that 65% of small business employers and 87% of large business employers look favorably on sustainability training when making hiring decisions. Sustainability not only encompasses a multidisciplinary perspective to solve problems from local to global scales, but also teaches the critical and systemic thinking skills that apply to myriad fields of study.
