This survey course focuses on developing an understanding of sustainability through the lenses of organizational and environmental sustainability. In this course, students will explore complex ecological systems to develop a foundational understanding of environmental sustainability. In addition, students will explore the theory and ethical applications of corporate social responsibility as a foundation of organizational sustainability. Students will ultimately merge the theories of environmental and organizational sustainability to begin analyzing the Triple Bottom Line and Corporate Social Responsibility. Students should check the course site on Sakai for on-line assignments that may begin prior to the first class meeting. Section A: Polly Chandler
