CityLabs and Sustainability Initiatives

Sustainable Food Systems is a new initiative focused on coordinating faculty, courses, and student community work to tackle big food-related issues in the community. Using the Triple Bottom Line model of people, planet, and prosperity, the initiative hopes to mimic the success of the UST HIV/AIDS Service Learning Cluster by direct engagement with a critical social issue of our time. Faculty, staff, and student ideas are welcome.
