Stewards VISTA: WCU SES Sustainability Community Engagement
The School of Environment & Sustainability (SES) formed in 2017 when we merged the 25-year-old Environment & Sustainability program, the 5-year-old Master in Environmental Management program, the new MS in Ecology, the 45-year-old Colorado Water Workshop, the 30-year-old Headwaters conference, the 5-year-old Coldharbour Institute, and three new Centers: the Center for Mountain Transitions, the Center for Public Lands, and the Center for Cold Climate Food Security. Our mission, vision, and values hold together these diverse and multi-faceted ways of serving social and environmental community resilience: OUR MISSION: We empower students to foster community transitions to ecologically resilient, economically sustainable, and socially just energy, food, water, and land-use systems. OUR VISION: We enact new ways to thrive in the American West, in worldwide mountain communities, and as global citizens through academic programs, public events, faculty research, and student projects. OUR VALUES: We deliver experiential and student-centered education, scientifically-informed decision-making, interdisciplinary learning, global networks of place-based change, cultural inclusivity and social justice, and cross-boundary (public/private, urban/rural, local/global) environmental stewardship.
