Program Information

The university sustainability minor is designed to prepare undergraduate students to understand and address complex issues of environmental, economic, and social sustainability from a variety of perspectives utilizing a systems thinking or systems theory framework. Because environmental and social systems are connected, issues like climate change, pollution, sustainable development, racial and economic inequality, and ecosystem health cannot be studied in isolation. Students completing the university minor in sustainability in conjunction with their disciplinary major leave Willamette prepared to live lives of meaning and service reflecting the University’s motto, “Not Unto Ourselves Alone are We Born.”
