Creating Pathways to Empower Sustainability Professionals


Sustainability professionals lead organizations and communities in driving social justice, environmental health, and a regenerative economy. For graduates of sustainability-oriented academic programs, professional, post-nominal, credentials help create an immediate onramp to a career in sustainability. By combining theory with practice, the B.A. program in Sustainability Studies (BASS) at Colorado Mountain College (CMC) is showing students a pathway into this meaningful profession. In partnership with the International Society of Sustainability Professionals (ISSP), the BASS is offering students an opportunity to prepare for and earn the Sustainability Associate (ISSP-SA) credential as part of their academic program.


This presentation will describe the challenges and successes the ISSP and the BASS have experienced in developing this partnership and will suggest opportunities for replicating this curricular approach across sustainability studies and related programs in colleges and universities.
