Abstract

The purpose of this project was to identify and develop a solution that will address the lack of engagement in sustainability at WPI. Our research included assessing sustainability engagement initiatives at other universities, reading academic journals regarding student engagement, interviewing individuals from WPI and other universities, and conducting student surveys. We analyzed this information and determined that implementing more service-learning at WPI is the most impactful method of encouraging student engagement and changing the mindset of sustainability.
