Sustainability Courses

 
This quick survey is intended to gather information regarding existing course offerings at Ohio University in relationship to sustainability. Results collected from this survey will be compiled and utilized in annual reporting programs and in outreach efforts to students.


Ohio University defines sustainability as the power to endure: an economy; an environment; as individuals; and, as a community. Healthy bodies, minds and spirits are fostered at Ohio University and individuals are provided with the resources and support needed to build collaborative communities that contribute to a vibrant economy and a healthy, thriving environment. This is done in a way that provides future generations with the ability to enjoy the same valuable experiences as the current generation. Sustainability is about being mindful of how we utilize resources; it allows us to critically analyze our own views of "needs" versus "wants" without diminishing quality of life now or into the future.
