As part of the Global Institute of Sustainability, the Stardust Center’s main goal is to further educate others on sustainable and affordable housing options. Courses that cover everything from urbanization, household budgets, family dynamics, and housing policies will be available starting fall 2013.
Sustainability and Social and Family Welfare
New for Fall 2013!
Emerging as a crucial element in decision-making, sustainability encompasses multiple perspectives, tradeoffs and impacts; offering new perspectives on social welfare problems and solutions. Students benefit from an understanding of social welfare that is developed through multiple lenses–including sustainability–to be effectively engaged in society and to contribute to creating a sustainable future.
Students critically examine potential solutions associated with major social issues and policy, family and household dynamics, neighborhood stability, social equity, environment and health. This course emphasizes the challenges involved in striving for social and economic justice in a pluralistic and diverse society with competing wants, needs, and values.
