St Thomas Volunteer

Sustainable Communities Partnership

The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) collaborates with government, non-profit, and campus partners to integrate sustainability projects important to communities into St. Thomas courses across disciplines, engaging students in real-world, experiential learning and creative problem-solving. SCP expands partner capacity to address long-standing and emerging sustainability challenges facing our communities while preparing students to be sustainability leaders and collaborators in their future career paths.

SCP's Sustainability Arts Initiative invites the campus community to explore interconnections of human and environmental well-being on campus and in our community through arts-based experiential engagement. Students across majors collaborate with local artists, writers, and communities to bring to life community sustainability goals for people of all ages.
