sustainability alliance education


Understanding the need for today’s students to be well educated in environmental issues, the Sustainability Alliance is working to develop new educational programs that infuse sustainability-related topics throughout the university’s curriculum, increasing the understanding and engagement of Case Western Reserve graduates from all areas of study—training the next generation of thought leaders to develop and champion practices that will have a lasting effect on the well-being of humanity.
