Sustainable Communities Partnership

The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) in the Office of Sustainability Initiatives develops multi-year partnerships with communities to integrate community-identified sustainability projects into St. Thomas courses across disciplines, engaging students in real-world, applied research and innovative problem-solving.  Projects include ecological, social, and economic dimensions of sustainability.

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.
