SAIC students are enormously concerned with the state of the environment. Many students have chosen to design curricular pathways that allow a broad exploration of issues related to the study of resource conservation, environmental activism, and ecological principles. The Sculpture department houses a laboratory called K-Lab, which means the SAIC Knowledge Lab. This is a place where students and faculty collaborate around the topics and processes of knowledge, innovation, and research. They collectively identify important subjects—such as energy, waste, or urban agriculture—undertake in-depth research, and formulate collaborative projects aimed at the production of new knowledge, which can make a meaningful contribution to understanding these issues. The study of Sustainability spans many departments across the school; see course listings below. Please see your advisor to discuss related course listings that pertain specifically to Sustainability.
