Sustainability Strategic Plan | Quality Education

SCU has pioneered a robust sustainability across the curriculum program, but we’ll need everyone’s expertise and contributions to truly solve the climate crisis and build a humane, just, and sustainable world. Students will experience their role in climate action through expanded use of the campus as a living laboratory in all academic disciplines.



  • Expand sustainability across the curriculum
  • Increase the number of scholars engaged in sustainability research
  • Use the campus as a living laboratory to develop sustainable solutions
