Virtual Exhibit

When given the opportunity to research, reflect upon, or otherwise examine a sustainability topic of their choice, what do undergraduate students do? In this exhibit, you’ll have the chance to take in the capstone projects of students in the Certificate in Sustainability. These projects have been developed and completed by Certificate in Sustainability students, with the guidance of our Academic Advisors.

This exhibit will be open for all of Sustainability Awareness Week; feel free to reach out to any of the students to learn more about their work! Check back here to see the projects.
