Welcome to the second annual Spotlight Series–a partnership between Notre Dame of Maryland University, Loyola University Maryland, and the Loyola Notre Dame Library. Serving both campuses and the broader Baltimore community, the series will highlight opportunities during the fall 2023 – spring 2024 academic year for engaged learning on the intersection of environmental sustainability and social justice.
What is sustainability?
According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, sustainability “is based on a simple principle: Everything that we need for our survival and well-being depends, either directly or indirectly, on our natural environment. To pursue sustainability is to create and maintain the conditions under which humans and nature can exist in productive harmony to support present and future generations.”
With an emphasis on the intersection of environmental sustainability and social justice, the Loyola Notre Dame Library views sustainability as a key component of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
