Academics & LifeLong Learning
Promoting learning, actions and practices that incorporate social, environmental, and economic sustainability in our communities is a Guiding Principle at Delta College. We are committed to preparing our graduates to make a difference in the way we live and work while being mindful of the interconnectedness of people, profit, and the planet. Our academic programs reflect the importance of the principles of sustainability to our students and our community. We engage our students as active participants in the solution of climate change.
Environmentally focused education ensures that students understand the ecological processes and how our choices affect the environment. Socially focused education develops student understanding of social justice and equity, encouraging involvement at the local level while considering the global population. Economically focused education teaches that business can be structured to be sufficiently profitable without generating financial profit at the expense of the ecosystem, local or world communities.
Academic Sustainability Courses
A sustainability-related course incorporates sustainable concepts as a distinct course module or concentrates on a single aspect of the three aspects of sustainability; environmental, social, or economic. Look for sustainability-related courses in the catalog -- they're the ones prefixed by an 'S'!
