Sustainability Living Learning Community

If you are excited to explore topics regarding sustainability, then you should think about the exciting possibility of living and studying in the Sustainability living learning community!

Sustainability LLC students can take ENVR 151: Environmental Challenges and Sustainable Solutions, which fulfills the Social Analysis requirement in the core curriculum, is a required course for the new Sustainability minor, and meets requirements toward the Environmental Studies major. This course can also fulfill an Environmental Science elective course with program director permission. Students in the LLC can also choose to take GEOL 115: Environmental Geology. Sstudents in either course will receive priority placement in the THEO 101 spring course focused on sustainability from a theological lens. 

Through your courses, you will engage in activities to understand the complexity of key environmental themes and explore sustainable solutions. The course employs case studies, computer mapping exercises, community partners, and some field work to actively examine important environmental issues facing humanity today. 

Outside the classroom you will live on a floor in Murray Hall with other first-year students interested in both environmental and social well-being. Your resident assistant will assist you in connecting with other students with similar interests and will coordinate activities and programs for the community. Additionally, you’ll enjoy social activities throughout the Twin Cities with classmates and faculty.
