Why is true sustainability so hard to achieve? Behind every environmentally friendly practice is a web of consequences, trade-offs, feedbacks, and barriers — and this undergraduate minor administered by the Institute for Sustainability, Energy, and Environment (iSEE) will help you develop a systems-level perspective of the economic, environmental and social dimensions of sustainability to help you navigate them.

The Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Fellows Program (SEE FP) is a campuswide undergraduate minor that prepares students for pursuing careers in the corporate sector, nonprofit organizations, government agencies and environmental advocacy groups.
