Sustainable Communities Program - The Sustainable Communities program helps students identify the intersecting economic, social, and political processes that create problems, enabling them to address the root causes and contribute to positive social change in our communities. This program cultivates dynamic, well-rounded leaders in sustainability, civic engagement, interdisciplinary research, and social justice who are ready to address issues like food sovereignty, plastic pollution, and other social and environmental challenges. Learn more on the Sustainable Communities webpage.
Environmental Sciences - Issues of sustainability, climate change adaptation and mitigation, environmental justice, biodiversity, and increasing demand for finite food, water, and energy resources become more critical every day. The environmental studies program at NAU trains students to better understand and improve our relationship with the natural world.
Office of Sustainability - It is the Office of Sustainability’s vision to showcase a living laboratory where students study and participate in the development of social equity, economic stability, and environmental stewardship. They seek to create, maintain and enhance the NAU Mountain Campus through continuous improvement and sustainable practices. The Office utilizes NAU’s Sustainability Action Plan to promote environmental stewardship in areas across campus. Learn more on the Office's webpage.
Center for Ecosystem Science and Society (Ecoss) - Ecoss faculty, staff, and students study how ecosystems respond to and shape environmental and climate change and work to communicate those discoveries in new ways to local and global communities. Collaborating with national laboratories and home to state-of-the-art research facilities, Ecoss trains scientists to apply broad trans-disciplinary thinking and leading-edge methods to the pressing challenges facing Earth.
