Sustainability

Academics



As a higher education institution, the University of Rhode Island must be confident that all students are prepared to boldly and successfully take on issues of global importance.   

We have the opportunity, as well as the responsibility, to instill an ethic of sustainability into each and every graduate.  By infusing education and research with issues of sustainability, URI can make significant contributions to the knowledge economy, strengthen civic engagement and contribute to the emerging green economy.
