As global concern over climate change continues to increase, sustainability has become an important part of many academic disciplines. WSU recognizes this and provides opportunities for students interested in sustainability. WSU currently offers a sustainable development minor, as well as a sustainable agriculture graduate certificate.

Education about sustainability equips students
to solve social, environmental and economic
challenges that the future holds.

Climate change policy panel

Two panel discussions on climate policy, and research and extension directions for ag and natural resources. Both panels will take place on March 19, 2024 in the Junior Ball Room, Compton Union Building, on the WSU Pullman campus and virtual participation option. There are limited seats for both options. RSVP to attend.

Panel 1: Climate Change Policy Careers – 9-10 a.m.

Graduate students and post-doctoral associates are invited to hear from panelists with diverse career paths. What types of climate policy career opportunities exist? How does one find them? How does one prepare for such jobs? What does one actually do on a day-to-day basis? 

Panel 2: Climate Change Research and Extension Opportunities in Today’s Evolving Policy Landscape – 10:30 a.m. – Noon 

Research and extension faculty and staff are invited to learn how federal and state level climate change policy is rapidly evolving and how that can influence opportunities for research and extension programs and funding?   

WSU provides real-world experience for students to engage with sustainability. Not all learning happens in a classroom.
