Education and Research Subcommittee

UMass Amherst has more than 300 sustainability courses. These courses are offered across 32 different disciplines and taught by over 100 faculty.

The Education and Research subcommittee oversees the Sustainability Course Finder (a searchable online list of these courses), helps students find out about UMass’ environmental and sustainability programs and classes, and makes recommendations to the Provost about academic sustainability offerings at UMass.

The subcommittee also provides support to faculty who want to increase the sustainability content of their classes, and has created a campus-wide set of sustainability-related learning outcomes. We foster sustainability research at UMass Amherst, and regularly convene faculty from different disciplines and areas of expertise to develop new interdisciplinary research and education opportunities.
