Importance of Inclusive Sustainability

Why is this work important?

Inclusive sustainability works to draw genuine connections between environmental sustainability and social justice. This new concept challenges traditional environmental practices that ignore or overlook important social justice issues.

Ladder of Opportunity
​Inclusive sustainability directly engages students and increases student success. On the campus level, this work connects students from all different backgrounds. We know that underserved/priority communities are most affected, with many of our students being food insecure or facing homelessness. We understand that the ladder of opportunity looks different for every student and work to promote a more inclusive campus culture.
