Green Academics

Preparing our graduates to make a difference in the way we live and work is important. So is being mindful of the interconnectedness of people, profit and the planet. 

Sustainability Teacher
What's our goal? To give each of our students an education that:
  • Ensures that our students understand ecological processes and how our choices affect the environment
  • Develops student understanding of social justice and equity, encouraging involvement at the local level while considering the global population
  • And, teaches students that business can be designed to be profitable without the expense of the ecosystem, local or world communities.

 

  • Students in class
    Sustainability-related courses

    At Delta, many courses have been designed with sustainability in mind. Every semester we offer students dozens of course options where you can explore in depth the three aspects of sustainability – environmental, social or economic. Look for the 'Sustainability Related Course' in the course notes when registering for classes.

"Taking a sustainability-related course helped me connect what sustainability means in the real world. Being green is more than a catchphrase, it's a way of life and a chance to do something good!"
