Change Leadership for Sustainability Program

Practicum

Getting real-world experience

To integrate and internalize core lessons from the Sustainability and Science curriculum, each student completes a 120-hour practicum project of their own design, collaborating on a complex sustainability challenge with an outside partner and working through the types of constraints often faced by decision makers and leaders. Students apply the leadership mindsets, knowledge and skills from the curriculum to this practical experience and present their final analysis and reflections to faculty and peers.
