A list of degree programs that have sustainability learning outcomes:

All students are required to pass WRIT 101: College Writing 1. Therefore all students graduate from programs that include sustainability learning outcomes at the course level.
Currently, WRIT 101 focuses on sustainability as a "big idea" to inquire into during the semester for a couple of reasons: first, we quite simply care about the environment and human rights but recognize that the enormity of such problems as global warming or racism can seem too daunting for individuals to change.

Currently, WRIT 101 focuses on sustainability as a "big idea" to inquire into during the semester for a couple of reasons: first, we quite simply care about the environment and human rights but recognize that the enormity of such problems as global warming or racism can seem too daunting for individuals to change. Many of us often don´t feel we have the power, the wherewithal, or the agency to change the world. However, we believe that thoughtful, committed individuals can make a difference, and this belief leads us to our second point – we see learning to write in college as a means of further educating you to be engaged readers and writers of the world we all live in and continue on your path of learning to be active, agile, and reflective learners. Learning to write in college includes considering where you stand in relationship to others´ beliefs, learning to work collaboratively and productively with others, and learning to critically engage new ideas and practices, and these skills and habits of mind are vital for being good students and interested citizens.
