Everybody owns sustainability. In other words, we are all in this together.
Innovative and practical sustainable solutions come from partnerships and collaboration. The SLU Center for Sustainability developed the Sustainability Leadership Council (SLC) as a way to connect sustainability stakeholders throughout the Midwest. The SLC engages sustainability leaders in the following ways:
Fellows - Thought leaders and professionals who practice or support sustainability. Fellows are often individuals who work for or with our REAL Partners organizations. Get to know our Fellows.
Scholars - Academics from partner colleges within SLU who are engaged in research or teaching that touches on the topic of sustainability. Get to know our Scholars.
REAL Partners - The Reality-Based Efficient Action Learning (REAL) Partners Program is tightly integrated with the Master of Sustainability (MOS) curriculum and provides our master's students with a variety of opportunities to collaborate with local organizations. Through various field practicum courses, students work directly with REAL Partners to apply academic concepts and research to hands-on sustainability projects in the "REAL world." Get to know our REAL Partners organizations.
Each of our collaborators is committed to sustainability as well as SLU's shared set of values that support the common good - competence, compassion, commitment, and community - often called the 5Cs or Standards of Conduct for the Common Good.
