Does the institution offer at least one immersive, sustainability-focused educational study program that is one week or more in length?:
A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution, including how each program addresses the social, economic, and environmental dimensions of sustainability:
The Sustainability Living-Learning Community opened in August 2018 after a year of development by the UofL Sustainability Council. The community is housed on campus in Bettie Johnson Hall (with overflow into Louisville Hall when necessary). This community provides students interested in sustainability and sustainable living with the opportunity to deepen their understanding of the principles and practice of sustainability, while developing skills, leadership, and a community of support. Participants in this immersive community live together, take classes together, and take action together. They participate in campus sustainability programming and service projects. As sustainability is an inherently transdisciplinary pursuit, participants from any major are welcome. You do not have to be pursuing a degree in Sustainability to live in this community, but participants are exposed to this new major as an option.
