Colleges and universities throughout the world are not only significant consumers of energy and natural resources but also have the social, economic and political impacts of small cities. How can these complex organizations reduce these complex and interconnected impacts while simultaneously educating the leaders of tomorrow?
Villanova University is committed to evolving an “ethos of sustainable living” to achieve these challenging opportunities. The hypothesis of this MS thesis is that the UN Sustainable Development Goals can be utilized as the core planning and decision framework for evolving this “ethos” throughout the 21st Century. A comprehensive quantitative sustainability decision-support process has been developed utilizing the SDGs. It will guide Villanova through the process of developing its sustainability plan. This unique approach is not only applicable to Villanova but also to other colleges and universities on a global basis.
