The minor in sustainability is designed to provide you with a fundamental understanding of the multidisciplinary and interconnectedness of sustainability. Using the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a guiding framework, you will develop a skill set that allows you to understand, articulate, and implement sustainability practices that will be used to address sustainability-related challenges in our society.

Since sustainability is more than just an environmental issue, the minor is designed to be accessible to students in all majors. You will learn how to utilize the SDGs within your field of study. All disciplines are impacted by and have contributions to make in achieving the SDGs for our world.

Minors are available to admitted U of M students only.
