Sustainable Communities Partnership

The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) collaborates with local and regional government, non-profit, and campus partners to integrate sustainability projects important to communities into St. Thomas courses across disciplines, engaging students in real-world, applied learning and creative problem-solving.

SCP's multi-year partnerships expand 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.
