A list of the institution level sustainability learning outcomes:

1. Justice: Guided by a framework of shared values and responsibility for cultivating a
diverse, equitable, and just society, Pratt students make decisions with consideration of their
impact upon individuals, communities, and the earth. They are compelled into action to resist all
forms of discrimination, inequalities, and supremacism, in order to promote just societal
transformation with frameworks and tools that allow for reflection and agency.
2. Environmental Sustainability: Pratt students are equipped to act on the urgent need to
reduce the negative impact of human activity on the health and stability of the Earth’s climate, of
the air, water, soils, and organisms that comprise its ecosystems, and of human communities.
Students weigh decisions, actions, and messages of their creative work against consequences
on resources across local and global contexts. With knowledge and appreciation of
interconnections among economic, environmental, and social factors, students champion and
enact positive transformations toward sustainable ecologies.
3. Global Citizenship: Pratt students understand that individuals and societies around the
globe are at once plural and inter-connected. Students are equipped with the knowledge and
practical skills to engage respectfully and ethically with individuals and cultures, participate in
civil society, and practice social as well as environmental responsibility, thereby contributing to
the greater good both locally and globally.
4. Resilience: Pratt students’ educational experience instills a sense of strength and fortitude,
empowering them to face present and future obstacles. Students learn about the connectivity
between and among themselves, their classmates and instructors, their families and their
community. As Pratt students become proficient in their core disciplines, they also develop the
ability to balance being centered and focused with the creative powers of adaptability, flexibility,
and acceptance of constructive criticism. These life skills teach them to value self-care and give
them the courage to tackle social, professional, ethical, and environmental challenges that they
will encounter.
