Sustainability in the Curriculum

Inspiring sustainability leaders in the classroom

Curriculum Highlights

Integrating sustainability into the academic realm has been a priority for Emory for years, and with a legacy of institutional sustainability leadership and ambitious goals for the future, we provide every student the opportunity to explore sustainable topics in the classroom and to become a part of solution-making through experiential learning and campus engagement.

By 2025, we will develop tools for assessing student competencies across the domains of sustainability while continuing to integrate sustainability into academic programs, degrees and experiential learning opportunities to assure universal sustainability literacy.

Curriculum Benefits

Through its work, the clinic offers students an intense, hands-on introduction to environmental law and trains the next generation of environmental attorneys.
