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

Below is a sample of some of Miami's immersive experiences:

Miami’s Luxembourg campus offers a course "Sustainability: European Challenges and Strategies" (ATH/GEO/ENV 409), which advances an interdisciplinary and inter-divisional approach to sustainability. It does so through on-site exploration of lifestyle, transportation, infrastructure, energy, business, and policy. Course participants assess European strategies for sustainability and weigh competing visions and priorities.

Miami's Farmer School of Business and Latin American Studies collaborate to offer a summer workshop in Latin America focused on environmental sustainability, conservation, and economic development in Costa Rica and Panama. Exploring these destinations allows students to gain an appreciation for the relationship between business and ecology through experiential learning.

A Water Resources and Sustainability in Zambia workshop offers students an opportunity to work together with students from the University of Zambia to conduct groundwater research with the overall goal of improving resource management and sustainable development. The course involves extensive field experiences .
