Does the institution offer at least one immersive, sustainability-focused educational study program that meets the criteria for this credit?:

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

The college offers a variety of short-term study abroad opportunities that are sustainability focused. In the last three years, there have been three trips to Costa Rica focused on topics of sustainable tourism, ecology and the environment, and volunteering in low-income areas. These trips were on average about 10-12 days long. There has also been a trip to Bonaire studying wildlife and a trip to Switzerland focusing on global child welfare. There continues to be sustainability-focused programs going forward as future course trips already proposed integrate the 3-tiers of sustainability as the primary lens for understanding.
