Join us at the vanguard of a growing number of Sustainability Leadership programs around the world. Edgewood College’s Sustainability Leadership Program is one of the first, nationally and globally, to offer a graduate-level professional Certificate, and the first in the United States to offer a Master of Arts degree in Sustainability Leadership.

The Sustainability Leadership Program is a collaborative innovation center where faculty, students and regional sustainability experts explore emerging ideas and apply them to student-led projects. Together, we are leading the change for healthier, more resilient organizations and communities.

As part of the program, you will address real-world sustainability issues related to your interests and professional goals; build a network with program colleagues, mentors, community leaders and other sustainability experts; and have the framework you need to apply new concepts and theories to community-based projects that engage others and build on your leadership strengths.


Taste of Peru

Join Sustainability Leadership graduate students for a Peruvian dinner at Inka Heritage restaurant while hearing about the projects they are doing with the community of Alto Cayma, Peru. Tickets are $55 and must be purchased by Tuesday, April 5th. All proceeds help pay for student travel and project material costs. Purchase your ticket today!

Each spring students in the Sustainability Leadership class “International Engagement: Sustainable Community Wellbeing,” travel to Alto Cayma to develop sustainable solutions to the people’s challenges of poverty. Alto Cayma is a settlement on the outskirts of the city of Arequipa, on the western slope of the Andes Mountains in southern Peru. In recent years the program has focused on agricultural practices and food systems in the settlement - from permaculture (combining natural landscaping with edible gardening) to building solar ovens. This year, the students will be teaching leadership and group facilitation skills.

We hope you’ll join us to learn more about the community of Alto Cayma, and the innovative, sustainable solutions that are helping to bring wellbeing to the community.
