Our climate change turning point is right here, right now

Fall 2021 will bring us back to campus, but the pandemic, climate crisis, racial injustice, global conflict, wildfires, and so much more require us to bring our art & design superpowers to create change.  We welcome your participation.  Lets work together to create a just and healthy future for all.

COF Minor in Sustainability

Through your course work in the COF Sustainability Minor you will be guided to develop fundamental interdisciplinary and collaborative skills necessary to address complex sustainability issues. The coursework in your major will be informed and enhanced by your study of Sustainability.
