Connecting Student Energy and Faculty Expertise with Local Community Projects
What is the Sustainable Communities Partnership?
The Sustainable Communities Partnership (SCP) program focuses the energy and ideas of faculty and students upon the issues that communities face as our society transitions to a more sustainable future. SCP facilitates a program in which students in Western courses complete community-engaged learning projects that address problems identified by the partner.

Sustainable communities value, and support through action:
- Well Being
- Social Justice
- Environmental Protection
- Economic Vitality
Sustainable communities strive for a thriving today and a thriving future.
SCP supports this definition of sustainability by engaging courses and faculty from many disciplines across campus. While we are always looking to expand the list, here are some of the departments we have engaged so far:
- Computer Science
- Environmental Sciences
- Environmental Studies
We do this work because we care about the health of our neighbors and the planet. We also think it is a great way to engage students in hands-on learning.
