A Campus-Community Urban Sustainability Program

The development of an urban sustainability program comprising four new courses, a first-year learning community, community-based learning activities, and a speaker series at the university’s Brooklyn campus.

LIU Brooklyn proposes to develop a Campus-Community Urban Sustainability Program (CUSP) that will provide opportunities for campus members, especially undergraduates, to investigate and address urban sustainability issues from an interdisciplinary perspective richly informed by the humanities. To engage students in sustainability studies, CUSP will create: (1) an integrated set of courses in four disciplines (biology, English, philosophy, and adolescent education); (2) experiential learning opportunities for students through internships, service learning, and research with community collaborators; and (3) spaces and opportunities for dialogue with the campus and community.
