This exciting new program is a faculty-led initiative approved by the Provost and endorsed by the Faculty Senate in cooperation with the Office of Sustainability, ND Energy, the Minor in Sustainability, and faculty, students, and staff partners across campus. This will be a permanent resource for sustainability teaching, lessons, and personal research. 

The first Earth Day in 1970 mobilized millions of Americans for the protection of the planet. On April 22, 1970, 20 million Americans — 10% of the U.S. population at the time — took to the street, college campuses, and hundreds of cities to protest environmental ignorance and demand a new way forward for our planet. The first Earth Day is credited with launching the modern environmental movement.

This year's theme is:  Climate Action.
