What is Sustainability?

Sustainability is the ability of something to be sustained into the future, and is generally advocated for and studied through the lens of humanity’s relationship with the natural world. Sustainability consists of 3 main pillars: environmental stewardship, social justice, and economic well-being.

Focusing on sustainability at a University level also emphasizes these principles in coursework, research, events, and organizations.
