IonE-Duluth is taking on the challenge of the moment in four important ways.

1. We have embraced to the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as our organizing principal

2. We have created a Sustainability Portal for our campus and community to help students, faculty, and others discover how the SDGs relate to:

  • Courses offered on campus
  • People who working on sustainability issues
  • Current research and projects on campus and into our region
  • Community organizations that share our goals

3. We have conducted an undergraduate survey on sustainability knowledge, beliefs, and actions to use as a baseline for monitoring changes in sustainability awareness on campus.

IonE-Duluth is digging deep into the original goals of our hub creating opportunities that are stimulating interdisciplinary interactions across campus and deepening our ties to the community.
