SUSTAINS Learning Community

The Students Understanding Sustainability and Taking Action to Improve Nature and Society (SUSTAINS) Learning Community focuses on helping students explore and engage with sustainability topics and human interaction with environmental problems. Through discussion, service and hands-on learning, students who are members of this community will learn about best practices for sustainable living and have opportunities to explore how sustainability relates to their lives and the lives of others.
Students in this program have the opportunity to live alongside peers who share an interest in exploring sustainable solutions for local, national, and global issues.  SUSTAINS is located in Scott House, one of the brand new buildings on North Campus.
Applications for SUSTAINS and the other Ohio State Learning Communities are due in late April each year.  For more details on the application process, please visit the OSU Housing's Learning Communities website.
