SEA defines sustainability as managing our resource usage to meet future environmental, social, and economical needs. Our mission is to empower students with professionals to create sustainable change in our community by acting as a platform to connect them. We do this through our events which provide individuals with opportunities to grow their knowledge, passion, and experience.
Our events allow us to educate students on the technical aspects of sustainable design, provide support for students to develop their own visions and interest in sustainability, and create a platform for networking with industry professionals. These are all accomplished through seminars, industry tours, career fairs, a mentorship program, competitions, conference, workshops, and student projects.
The strategic goals of SEA include the following:
1) Identify the roles of students and future professionals in sustainability from multiple perspectives including design, business & management, and policy-making
2) Educate students on the technical aspects of sustainable design, including power systems, infrastructure, transportation, sustainable businesses, and more
3) Provide support for students to develop their personal visions, interest, and passion for sustainable design and practice – ultimately for use in their professional careers
4) Create a platform for networking and collaboration between the student body and industry professionals in the sustainability field
By providing educational, engagement, and leadership opportunities, SEA strives to instill a sustainable mindset in students for use far beyond their University lives. We hope to see you at our events!
