This arc is in service to the institutional goal of becoming a nationally recognized, leading-edge environmental college focused on sustainability science as the “what’s next” of higher education for 21st century ecological problem solving. This office is committed to sustainability as a core focus of Unity’s identity, is strategically focused, entrepreneurial, addresses organizational change issues, and participates in financial and business planning, all within a framework of collaborative leadership.
