Social Justice and Sustainability - Integrative Pathway
This Pathway brings together social justice and sustainability – approaches that have often been distinct. Social justice is necessary to sustain institutions, societies, and our planet over the long term. Likewise, social justice benefits from including the sustainability framework; by which long-lasting solutions to local and global challenges are developed through understanding the connections among social equity, environmental stewardship, and economic well-being and including these in decision-making and planning processes. Over three years in this Pathway, students craft new approaches to a more sustainable world for the benefit of all, as they become increasingly aware of how asymmetries of power and privilege operate on a daily basis. Students, staff and faculty become active agents in the transformation of our world through critical and collective citizenship.
