The minor in sustainability is open to Notre Dame students in all majors and colleges.

Through a multidisciplinary approach, the minor prepares students to serve as leaders in their communities - local, national, and international - by making constructive and substantive contributions to the development of more sustainable practices for the benefit of their own personal and professional lives, the lives of others, and the lives of future generations.

Learn about the requirements of the minor in sustainability. Read about the capstone projects of current and past sustainability students. Check out our resources page for ways to get involved in sustainability research on campus and in the Michiana area.
