The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) develops partnerships with cities and government entities to integrate city-identified sustainability projects into existing St. Thomas courses across disciplines.  Projects, which include ecological, social, and economic dimensions of sustainability, engage students in real-world, applied research and innovative problem-solving while advancing city sustainability and quality of life goals.

SCP partnerships seek to catalyze systems-level change towards human and environmental well-being in the Twin Cities area and prepare students for the complexities of problem-solving in contemporary society.
