School of Environment and Sustainability

The School of Environment and Sustainability (SENS) seeks to bridge multiple disciplines across the natural, physical, social sciences, as well as the humanities and engineering to address the most challenging environmental and sustainability issues we face. Having been established in 2007 with over 100 alumni, our students benefit from innovative, forward-thinking mentorship of interdisciplinary researchers and practitioners as they are guided through exploratory exercises that emphasize critical thinking and alternative ways of knowing.

Sustainability Education Research Institute

The Sustainability Education Research Institute (SERI) is a Type A Centre within the College of Education.

Established in 2012, SERI is a collaborative, innovative, and internationally-linked institute that houses faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate students, staff, and other partners conducting research on environment and sustainability in relation to education.

Sustainability Education Policy Network

Established in 2012, SEPN is a national network of researchers and organizations advancing sustainability in education policy and practice.  The Network is a partnership between Canadian and international researchers and leading Canadian and North American policy and educational organizations.

SEPN’s research examines the relationships between sustainability education policies and practices in early childhood to grade 12 education (EC-12) and post-secondary education (PSE) in Canada with the goal of enabling educational change for a more sustainable future.

SEPN is hosted at the University of Saskatchewan and funded by $2 million in Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) funding and $1 million in matching funds from SEPN’s partners and contributors.
