Educational Opportunities at Truman
Sustainability Office: The Truman State University Sustainability Office offers resources and helpful tips on how to live a more sustainable lifestyle on campus. The office also assists in connecting students to sustainability-related organizations on campus and in the community that might be of interest to them. The office is located in VH 1304 and Spring 2017 office hours are MTWRF 11:30-1:30. For more information contact Sustainability Coordinator Rebecca Elder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Global Issues Colloquium: The Global Issues Colloquium is a monthly event series where speakers invited to the University to discuss pertinent global issues. In many instances, these issues are centered around sustainability concerns, such as climate change, biodiversity loss, and land sovereignty issues. However, each colloquium focuses on a different global issue, so it is useful to first check the website before attending to ensure the topic is of interest to you.
Interdisciplinary Studies Major: If you are interested in taking a large step towards a greater understanding of environmental issues, you can declare and Interdisciplinary Major in Environmental Studies, Sustainable Development, Sustainable Agriculture, Environmental Policy, Environmental Ethics, or any other sustainability-related field. To be eligible you must enroll in the IDSM 175: Introduction to Interdisciplinary Studies course and design your major program under the helpful guidance of an Interdisciplinary Studies Professor.
