Dean's Welcome Message


I am delighted to welcome our Spring 2021 incoming students and our returning students to the Patel College of Global Sustainability. We are pleased to be facilitators of an academic environment in which a new generation of global sustainability leaders are trained to take on various sustainability challenges.

We look forward to seeing you continue to grow in your knowledge and in your understanding of sustainability. Our college embraces all aspects of global sustainability in areas such as civil society, conflict resolution, poverty, hunger, healthcare, and diplomacy. Through research, student development programs, fellowships, scholarships, and internships you will have opportunities to expand your education outside the classroom. I look forward to your participation in our many PCGS academic and experiential learning initiatives. Please read more about the exciting Spring 2021 activities below.
