High Country News recognizes SNC’s Sustainability program

Sierra Nevada College’s Sustainability major was included in the High Country News’ annual Special Issue on the Future. This year’s theme: Building a more sustainable West, one city at a timefocused on the region’s more notable efforts to build sustainable urban environments.

There was a special pull-out section Sustainability Studies Guide - Sustainability: Higher Education’s New Field of Study which included SNC as one of the leading programs in the country and what we are doing to help meet the challenges of the future. Go to page 49-51 on High Country News’ pdf version of the magazine to see the blurb about SNC and the photo of Lake Tahoe next to it. We also have an ad for SNC on page 44.

The High Country News says that next year it will continue to explore the future and its challenges. As it uncovers what academic institutions, innovative and non-traditional educational programs, conservation groups, companies and others are doing to address those challenges, we expect and hope that SNC will continue to be included for its innovative work in Sustainability.
