The Atkinson Center uses the 1983 United Nations Brundtland Commission definition of sustainability, "Sustainable development meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."

We find that sustainability transcends individual disciplines, while resting on a foundation of disciplinary understanding. The Center's three main program areas—Energy, Environment, and Economic Development—are tightly linked and interdependent.

The following 403 courses have been identified as addressing sustainability. They are categorized as sustainability-focused and sustainability-related according to the STARS v1.2 (p. 39) guidelines:

  • Sustainability-focused courses concentrate on the concept of sustainability, including its social, economic, and environmental dimensions, or examine an issue or topic using sustainability as a lens.
  • Sustainability-related courses incorporate sustainability content as a course component or module.

We encourage faculty, departments, schools, and colleges to bring other sustainability courses to our attention, by emailing acsf@cornell.edu.

Interested students should review course websites, contact the instructor, and/or discuss options with their advisor.

We update this list as a courtesy to the Cornell community, but we may not capture the most recent course changes. Please refer to the authoritative Courses of Study and check with the relevant department.
