About the Program
***5/4/20. This page is no longer updated. The Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) Environmental Science degree program is now administered by the MTSU Geosciences Department. For the latest, go to MTSU's Department of Geosciences .***
The GeoSustainability project is increasing undergraduate use of sustainability active learning materials at Middle Tennessee State University. The project seeks to recruit and increase the retention of undergraduates who are interested in sustainability and who fit better into Geoscience than other disciplines. MTSU has a relatively high percentage of veterans, first-generation college students, and transfer students, and the MTSU InTeGrate implementation project is keenly interested in working with these students as well as all students interested in sustainability.
We are working toward this objective in three ways:
- Involving MTSU non-STEM majors in active learning and service learning about sustainability.
- Helping MTSU faculty mentor and advise students who are preparing themselves for the sustainability workforce by majoring in Geoscience.
- Connecting MTSU Geosciences students with opportunities to volunteer at the K-12 level.
