In the College of Integrated Science and Engineering (CISE), we integrate the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) into our coursework and research. This connection adds real-world relevance and social impact, demonstrating how our efforts can contribute, even on a small scale, to important global goals.

Beginning in November 2023, you'll notice that our stories and research projects will be linked to the SDGs.

"Our work has meaning beyond the classroom, says Bob Kolvoord, CISE Dean. "We are leading the way in demonstrating how diverse skills can be applied for the public good."

Incorporating SDGs builds students’ understanding of global citizenship and empathy as they learn about challenges faced worldwide and gain perspective on how their fields can create positive change. This prepares our graduates to incorporate social responsibility and sustainability into their future careers and furthers JMU’s mission to develop engaged and enlightened citizens.
