Sustainability at ISU
Sustainability means being able to live in the present while meeting ones needs in everyday life without comprising the needs of everyday life for future generations. As global climate change has become a bigger issue, experts from around the world have committed to coming together in order to make our world more sustainable. The path to sustainability, while long, must start somewhere. This research examines what sustainability means at Illinois State University: Where are ordinary students getting their knowledge of sustainability? How are these students from all walks of life trying to be sustainable? What are the dining halls doing with their waste? In what ways are they being sustainable? Where is sustainability in our curriculum? What are the board members of registered student organizations committed to sustainability doing to promote the subject? What are the discourses surrounding sustainability as a whole on campus? Where on campus we are thriving and where we are falling short?
