The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) develops multi-year partnerships with communities to integrate a set of community-identified sustainability projects into St. Thomas courses across disciplines, engaging students in real-world, applied research and problem-solving.
SCP Arts projects integrate an arts-based dimension into applied learning to enrich analysis and engage all ages in community sustainability goals. Local artists collaborate with students to translate their SCP project findings into artwork. SCP and partners share project artwork created through SCP Arts course project collaborations in their communities and beyond.
