A clear, common definition of sustainability is necessary for effective communication and coordination around learning and action across campus. This Target invokes a campuswide definition and standardized reporting of existing sustainability courses. To successfully facilitate this goal and others, an Academic Sustainability Manager will be hired. The 2021 Action Plan will also lay foundations for the development of a UWwide sustainability course or other general requirement, and begin work toward a common, minimum sustainability learning outcome by 2025.
