“Adaptation requires us to embrace change and be open to alternative ways of doing things. Sustainability and climate action require us to completely reimagine systems within society to ensure our ability to meet our needs and those of future generations. It is critical that today’s students develop the skills necessary to be adaptive in a world that is changing more quickly than we can comprehend.”
Director, Office of Sustainability
OUR COMMITMENT TO ADAPTATION

And it’s our foundation for approaching today’s toughest challenges in a fourth industrial world—from sustainable built environments, food and water security to health equity and the future of medicine.
