Sustainability

Sustainability and profitability are not mutually exclusive. Terry graduates should have a grounding not only in how to make an operation successful but how to make it sustainable — both environmentally and economically.

As a sponsoring college of UGA's Sustainability Certificate, Terry believes tomorrow's business leaders will develop solutions to help the world overcome the toughest environmental challenges.

With our sustainability initiative, we seek to ingrain sustainability as a core part of the Terry experience. In support of this goal, we are recruiting faculty experts, expanding course offerings, launching an area of emphasis in sustainability and supporting student participation in experiential learning opportunities.
