The Sustainability living and learning community on Mount Vernon campus brings together first-year students and faculty who are passionate about conserving and wisely utilizing the earth’s resources. Students will live together in a close-knit community of peers who are similarly passionate about protecting ecological health—now and in the future. Together, they will explore major issues in sustainability in a special seminar in the fall semester. In spring, students may choose to pursue independent, faculty-directed research on a sustainability-related topic. Throughout the year, students in the Sustainability living and learning community will have ample opportunity to draw upon the wide array of resources and opportunities around GW and in the greater Washington, DC region. This living and learning community is open to students of all majors and schools.
