Working Group on Education
Mission statement for the Sustainability Working Group on Education
As an institution of higher education grounded within the Catholic and Jesuit traditions, Saint Joseph’s University is committed to integrating sustainability issues throughout its educational programs.  Our mission is to identify opportunities for such integration, support and encourage faculty and staff in the pursuit of these opportunities, and to provide a means for sustainability education efforts to reach beyond SJU into the broader community.


  • Identify existing connections between sustainability issues and educational efforts at Saint Joseph’s University, which include both internal and external efforts.
  • Identify opportunities for introducing sustainability issues into the various educational efforts of Saint Joseph’s University in an open and collaborative way.
  • Propose ways in which current and future educational sustainability efforts can be used to broaden and integrate sustainability initiatives internally and externally.
