Learn about educational sustainability doctorate Thursday

Learn more about a first-in-the-nation doctoral program in educational sustainability during an online informational session at noon Thursday, Oct. 26; at 1 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 13; and at 10 a.m. Thursday, Nov. 30.

Offered by the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point, the first Ed.D. in educational sustainability explores leading sustainable change in education, the environment, business and communities. Participants practice understanding and responding to problems in economic, ecological and social justice contexts, in ways that promote sustainability.

Thirteen students, from a variety of professional backgrounds, are participating in the first session of the program, which began in August.

Admission applications are being accepted for the second cohort until Jan. 19, 2018, or when filled. The program is primarily online, beginning in June 2018, following an on-campus orientation.

This doctoral program recognizes education is the core of changing systems. It challenges students to educate for sustainability, which it defines as an interconnected process that cultivates integrity and well-being for human and natural systems.
