Our Mission

Mission Statement

"To generate and apply knowledge through holistic praxis to create sustainable solutions that transform society by rethinking, redesigning, and restoring integrated systems." 

As a hub for operational management, applied research, public engagement and experiential learning around sustainability, we recognize our mission as generating new knowledge; but more importantly as engaging through principled praxis in the application of that knowledge to empower individuals and enrich society in a socially transformative manner. The Office of Sustainability strives to provide opportunities for the College of Charleston community to apply their acquired knowledge towards the development of sustainable, multi-scale solutions.
