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

The Sustainable Agriculture program offers an apprenticeship , open to all students, working with the Community Supported Agriculture program. Students work on the farm and help with the logistics of the CSA. The principles of sustainability are integrated into every facet of this program.

The college of agriculture will offer a summer course this year in which students will study sustainable agriculture in Thailand for 4 weeks.

There are also several courses within the University of Kentucky which offer students the chance to experience Robinson Forest, a parcel of land owned by the university, in a variety of sustainability contexts. Two of these courses include NRC 320, "Field Experience in Data
