About the Center for Sustainability
Who we are
Established in 2010 by a grant from the Alberici Foundation, Saint Louis University’s Center for Sustainability offers in-demand degrees and expertise on the critical environmental and planning challenges facing today’s society.
The Center offers both a groundbreaking master’s degree in sustainability - the first and only program of its kind at a Jesuit university – and a master’s of urban planning and real estate development.
Through innovative academic programs, applied research and regional outreach opportunities, the Center for Sustainability’s students and faculty develop creative, collaborative solutions to improve the world around them.
Playing a pivotal role in green business and government throughout the metro Saint Louis area, the Center for Sustainability offers community education, hosts regional conferences and partners with leaders in the green community
