SCP collaborates with partners to integrate a set of community-identified sustainability projects into St. Thomas courses across disciplines. SCP partnerships are multi-year, engaging courses from multiple disciplines in applied research and collaborative problem-solving to advance community sustainability goals.  Sustainability encompasses social, ecological, and economic dimensions of interconnected human and environmental well-being.

Take a look at current and completed SCP projects and outcomes with St. Thomas courses and SCP partners.  SCP has collaborated with partners and faculty to integrate over 100 projects into St. Thomas courses across 25 disciplines since Spring 2016.


SCP Arts projects integrate an arts-based dimension into applied learning to enrich analysis and communication of findings and to engage all ages in community sustainability goals.
