Graduate Certificate in Strategic Sustainability Leadership

About the Program

Today, the largest and most well-known corporations in the world,  e.g., Wal-Mart, Interface, Nike, Starbucks, Cummins Engine, Toro, Home Depot, IKEA, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, Electrolux, and General Electric, are aggressively integrating sustainability action plans into their operations. In order to do this, they are also looking upstream and asking the many local and regional small business suppliers in their value and supply chains to do the same. As a result, small and medium sized businesses, which provide the lion’s share of jobs in our region as well as nationally, find themselves scrambling to catch up in this changing environment. The problem is that in most cases small and medium businesses, manufacturers, and service providers do not have the expertise, personnel, or resources to set up the kind of robust sustainability education and training programs that their corporate clients are demanding of them.

This growing interest and demand for sustainability is not limited to business, but is now a driving factor in virtually every sector of our society and economy. Government (local, state, and federal), the not-for-profit sector, and the general public are also struggling to become more sustainable in the face of soaring energy costs and growing concerns about environmental degradation and global climate change.

The Graduate Certificate in Strategic Sustainability Leadership will give you the training and credentials to become a sustainability champion and help your business, not-for-profit, or governmental unit to take advantage of the newly emerging green economy opportunities for innovation and efficiency offered by leveraging the triple-bottom-line of people, prosperity and planet.

The Certificate in Strategic Sustainability Leadership may be taken alone, or as part of the Master of Liberal Studies Degree.

All classes for the Certificate can be completed in the evening and within 15 months, including the summer session
