A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive experience(s) offered by the institution:

George Mason University (Mason) offers numerous immersive learning experiences focused on sustainability issues, including internships, independent study and service learning opportunities. Emblematic are the collaborative action research projects at the core of the undergraduate capstone course, [EVPP 480] Sustainability in Action, which challenges students to make a difference in our community, using sustainability wisdom as their guide, then document and report on what they learn. One example of students' products from this process is presented in the URL below. This course is the capstone for the Environmental and Sustainability Studies B.A. degree, which also requires a pertinent internship experience.
