A free, transcript-visible credential to demonstrate your sustainability knowledge

OSU's Sustainability Office in partnership with OSU's Sustainability Double Degree Program, is offering a new, two-part leadership program designed to provide a structured, practical and meaningful experience for students who wish to explore sustainability in a flexible, cost effective framework. Students can complete the Canvas-based Program at their own pace without committing to the time or expense of a for-credit course. They will become familiar with OSU’s sustainability community while developing skills to strengthen career pathways, gain a sense of place and connect with peers who share a common interest. 

Take advantage of the excellent opportunities to explore sustainability here at OSU, join with other students, have fun, learn skills, and make a difference!
