UB is an incubator for teaching and learning in sustainability. Whether it’s a course in glacial geology or philosophy and the environment, learning opportunities in sustainability can be found in just about every school and program at UB.
Courses in sustainability provide opportunities to students that extend beyond the classroom. Building relationships with professors and real life practitioners of sustainability will open doors to internships, jobs, or research at UB and beyond. These opportunities are what will drive our sustainable economy.
What is sustainability? It is what fuels us to create a better tomorrow for ourselves and future generations here at UB. It is a culture of teaching that prepares our students for a world filled with change and uncertainty, getting them ready for a tomorrow without fossil fuels, but saturated with solar panels.
The Academies are living and learning communities that bring
together university faculty, staff, alumni and students to focus on
five broad themes: Sustainability, Entrepreneurship, Civic
Engagement, Global Perspectives, and Research Exploration.
UB offers a range of sustainability courses, including
curriculum that supports a sustainability related major, and
courses that enhance other majors. Sustainability related courses
touch nearly every single discipline at UB.
UB students are the leaders of tomorrow; their work in the area of sustainability is leading to new discoveries and real world solutions.
With a focus on sustainability this year, International Education Week 2014 celebrates the breadth of international exchange and sustainability at UB.
