College Information:

The mission of PCGS is achieving sustainable development, both locally and globally, by fostering social, economic and environmental sustainability; we accomplish this through teaching, research, mentoring students and community outreach, as well as by generating practical knowledge and developing innovative technologies, skills and policies.

Drawing from various definitions of “sustainability” we seek to ensure that these efforts both endure and dramatically expand at USF; that they encourage the natural interconnections among those groups on campus addressing ecology, economics, politics and culture; that they recognize the essential contributions of scholars and professionals in engineering, business, architecture and urban planning, transportation, health, global studies and the natural and social sciences; and, that they serve to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony, fulfilling the social and economic requirements of present and future generations.

The College employs an elite core faculty and staff, with its real strength being its ability to serve as the hub for a network of scholars and professional experts interested in working together to generate new knowledge and prepare a new generation of sustainability professionals. These professionals will provide their expertise to assist communities, companies, and governments maximize their productivity, reduce their ecological and carbon footprint, practice social responsibility and enhance resilience
