Sustainability in the Curriculum

URI is known for its robust curriculum in the natural sciences, environmental and natural resource economics, oceanography, ocean engineering and marine affairs. However, ensuring that students outside of the “traditional” environmental science programs are equally prepared to address sustainability issues via cross-disciplinary or multidisciplinary collaboration across the curriculum, is a significant challenge. 

Many programs have been developed to help infuse sustainability topics into the curriculum.
