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

UNBC participates in the North American Sustainability Scholars Program. The Consortium for North American Sustainability (CNAS) provides students with one-semester exchanges at one of the six partner universities offering courses and experiences in working with local communities. A certificate is awarded by the CNAS for students completing coursework in sustainability issues as well as a community-based research project. The program offers study abroad in Mexico or the US and is open to students in all majors.

Through this program students develop a deeper understanding of North American issues and how they affect local long- term environmental, social, cultural, and economic well-being. Students also gain skills related to working in other cultures and incorporating global perspectives in decision-making.
