Maria Dahmus is the co-founder and director of the Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) at the University of St. Thomas.  

Maria develops and implements the strategic vision for SCP, including multi-year partnerships with cities and government agencies and collaborative, course-based projects across disciplines.  In 2017, she started the SCP Arts initiative. Through SCP Arts, students across majors collaborate with local artists, writers, and communities to bring to life community-identified sustainability goals for people of all ages. 

Maria's primary teaching interest is interdisciplinary, experiential environmental education.  Maria worked as an experiential educator in Texas and Colorado and taught scuba diving in the British Virgin Islands.  She has also taught a variety of courses in Environmental Studies and the Aquinas Honors Program at the University of St. Thomas.  She enjoys swimming, scuba diving, cross-country skiing, and exploring the outdoors with her husband, son, and two dogs.
