Our alumni are in high demand
The 2019 employment survey of School of Sustainability alumni
(2008-2018 graduates*) showed that most are working in sustainability careers.
There is a demand for employees and leaders who know what sustainability is and understand its complexity, understand how to approach problems and solutions, and know how to work with and draw from different disciplines.
The nation’s first school of sustainability
Established in 2006, the School of Sustainability’s mission is to educate a new generation of scholars and practitioners and create innovative modes of scholarship by bringing together leaders, stakeholders, and people from multiple disciplines to develop practical solutions to the most pressing sustainability challenges.
The School offers both undergraduate and graduate programs leading to degrees in sustainability at the Tempe and Polytechnic campuses, as well as through ASU Online.
