The Office of Sustainability Initiatives (OSI) creates opportunities for experiential, applied learning in sustainability across majors through the Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) and facilitates the integration of sustainability across the curriculum to advance the common good. Our partnerships catalyze systems-level change towards sustainability in the Twin Cities area while preparing students to become problem-solvers and innovators for human and environmental well-being in contemporary society.
