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 School of Business teaches a triple bottom line (3BL) approach to sustainability through its Sustainable Enterprise Accelerator, in which student interns typically work in teams with local businesses and/or nonprofit organizations for summer internship experiences. The 3BL approach emphasizes the importance of people, the planet and profit as important performance metrics that successful businesses must recognize. This allows the student to immerse themselves in sustainable-business practices and provides the student with a hands-on experience that integrates sustainability with its business component. See http://www.seasru.com/ and/or https://issuu.com/64908 for additional information.

Immersive, sustainability-focused educational study programs are also offered to graduate assistants and student volunteers at the 70.8 acre Robert A. Macoskey Center for Sustainable Systems Education and Research. See http://www.sru.edu/offices/macoskey-center and https://www.sru.edu/Documents/about/sustainability/RAMC_Brochure.pdf for additional information about immersive programs at the Macoskey Center.
