SUSTAINABILITY: SMALL STEPS, GIANT LEAPS
Sustainability is the conscious behavior that maintains healthy, long-lasting, and beneficial environmental, social, and economic systems, and fosters community well-being through the stewardship of interdependent and valuable resources. The idea of sustainability incorporates individual responsibility in decision making and lifestyle choices, as well as societal participation, corporate activities, politics, and global citizenship.

The tradition of the Dedicated Semester began in the fall of 2007 with a campus-wide exploration of Judaism. Each fall, the Fontbonne University sponsors a different subject for the semester. With cooperation from schools, divisions, departments, and programs across the university, our campus community explores a new theme. Academic departments contribute courses that are the core curriculum of the Dedicated Semester, which is also supported by a variety of co-curricular activities and events.
