In fall 2018, Kapiʻolani Community College will be the first campus in the University of Hawaiʻi System to offer an academic subject certificate in sustainability. The certificate recognizes the importance of sustainability to Hawaiʻi’s future and strong student interest in the subject.
The courses will concentrate on sustainability and include the social, economic and environmental dimensions of the discipline. Some courses will examine an issue or topic through the lens of sustainability. The classes will be applied to the certificate, and faculty teaching the courses will help students better understand sustainability issues and how to integrate them into their career pathway.
