Sustainability Education Models to Developing Countries

Commitment by

Rochester Institute of Technology

In 2011, Tom Golisano and the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) committed to sharing the model of sustainability education developed at the Golisano Institute for Sustainability. This model integrates five partner universities in developing countries around the world. Sustainability education requires significant knowledge and resources beyond the reach of many institutions in developing countries. Through this commitment, universities around the world will have new or improved sustainability curricula, a higher degree of subject matter expertise among faculty and graduate students, and an enhanced body of sustainability research. The ultimate goal of this commitment is to greatly expand the capacity of universities to develop professionals with the expertise necessary to address local and regional short and long term economic, environmental, and industrial sustainability needs.
