Culminating Experiences

School of Sustainability students use what they learn in their degree programs towards a culminating experience towards the end of their program, typically just before they graduate. There are varying types of culminating experiences and many of them can be found online. Towards the end of each semester, the School of Sustainability also hosts a student showcase (advertised on the Events page), where students showcase their work.
