This interdisciplinary, capstone course explores the dimensions of ecological (and, to a lesser degree, social and economic) sustainability in higher education generally and the University of Michigan specifically in a dynamic, interactive way. The course draws upon theory and practice in sustainability, environmental management, organizational change and social advocacy. Students conduct a substantial, hands-on group project in conjunction with a university sponsor. Through site visits, guest lectures, discussions, lectures and this project, this course aims to address the real life challenges of campus environmental sustainability. Thus, this course focuses on active, participation-based learning, and students should leave the course with an understanding of the campus as a lever for social/environmental change and with the personal tools to act as change agents.
