Social responsibility and environmental stewardship are at the forefront of mainstream consumers, college students and society as a whole.

In today’s world of increasing environmental awareness, sustainability is no longer optional; companies and educational institutions need to assess the environmental, social, and economic impact they have on our communities and systematically implement sustainable practices.

Today’s organizations need trained subject matter experts to transform their standard operating practices in the proper direction.

Students will also learn how to engage the community to enhance the public image of your organization, and ultimately realize the monetary and social impacts of those changes through cost savings and profits.
