Whatever path your education takes, sustainability matters. Here at Akron, where The University of Akron shares its name and location with the City of Akron, we know how vital it is to co-exist mindfully. We are working hard every day to do and be better at living sustainably on our campus, in our city and in the world.
My involvement with sustainability initiatives brought to light the developments happening on campus, gave me opportunity to thrive at UA, and opened doors for my career. Organizations on campus recognize that interdisciplinary collaboration is necessary to produce efficient solutions... These groups allowed me to explore the issues facing our environment while combating them with action. UA blends academics with passion, and for me, this is sustainability. Sharing this passion has brought me close to many faculty members and students that want to create a healthier life for future generations.”
