What is Sustainability?

Recently, the term sustainability has been a buzz in the media, within Fortune 500 business companies and, of course, on college and university campuses.   

Here, at CSUSM, we are striving to integrate sustainability themes and concepts into the curriculum and into our decision making processes. We are conserving our resources (energy, water, waste) and we are seeking to ultimately develop a culture of sustainability for all students, staff and faculty.

But what is sustainability and how does it impact everyone?
