Academics in Sustainability

​Sustainability is a key area that is addressed at Stevens in academic programs and research. It is a multidisciplinary domain of critical importance to our futures, one that we strive to enhance our efforts and their impact. These initiatives strongly align with our Strategic Plan 2032: Inspired by Humanity, Powered by Technology

Stevens embraces sustainability in the functioning of our campus. This provides opportunities for analysis and testing, and for innovation that can engage our students in a very direct way to make a difference. Similarly, through our close relationship with our hometown, the City of Hoboken, our students and researchers are able to work on sustainability projects of value to the community and on related efforts in resilience.
