Engaging with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
Department(s):George C. Gordon Library
Beginning in fall 2020, students have been able to associate their completed projects with the UN Sustainable Development Goals in Digital WPI.
What are these goals? We invite you to take a few minutes to explore them:
- Do you know all 17 SDGs? (1.5 min video)
- Dive deeper at the UN SDG site
- Read about Times Higher Education's "Impact Ranking" using the SDGs
How else can WPI engage with the SDGs? On Earth Day 2021 (April 22) Provost Wole Soboyejo, WPI students and six WPI faculty will share their work and their vision for WPI’s engagement with the UN Sustainable Development Goals through their projects, teaching, and scholarship.
This one-hour webinar from 12-1pm will feature opening remarks from Provost Soboyejo, a presentation by a student IQP team that mapped WPI courses to the SDGs; and a roundtable conversation with Professors Tom Balistrieri, Leslie Dodson, Carrick Eggleston, Gbeton Somasse, Sarah Strauss, and Sarah Stanlick.
The program is co-hosted by the Office of Sustainability, the Diversity and Inclusion Team, and the Gordon Library, reflecting that the goals for sustainability and diversity, equity and inclusion are interdependent.We hope you will mark your calendars and join us: wpi.zoom.us/s/93570711776
