SUST 220: Case Studies in Leading Change for Sustainability

This course teaches essential leadership orientations and effective approaches for advancing sustainability globally. It examines case studies and examples of leading change in the private sector, and in cross-sector collaborations involving government, business and non-profit organizations. The course teaches students the Connect, Adapt and Innovate (CAN) orientations and other skills which enhance students' ability to cultivate resilience and well-being in their lives and to lead change in complex systems. Strategies and approaches studied include B Corporations, social entrepreneurship, indigenous community-business collaborations, biomimicry, circular economy, sharing economy, corporate sustainability strategy, the UN sustainable development goals, metrics of progress beyond GDP, and transformative multi-stakeholder partnerships. Through conceptual frameworks, hands-on exercises, class discussion, reflection and interactions with sustainability leaders, students practice decision-m more »

Through conceptual frameworks, hands-on exercises, class discussion, reflection and interactions with sustainability leaders, students practice decision-making under uncertainty, systems thinking, resilience thinking and transformative leadership. Working in teams, students will apply their learnings in collaborative class projects. To help cultivate a highly engaged course community, please send responses to the following questions to Julia Novy (julia3@stanford.edu); admitted students will receive a permission code to be used for course enrollment. 1. What is one of the most significant challenges you've faced and how did you approach it? 2. What would you like to get out of this course? 3. What will you contribute?

SUST 225: Decision Making for Sustainability

Leaders make individual and collective, often interdependent decisions in complex and adaptive contexts under high degrees of uncertainty. This course prepares students for making such decisions by combining modern decision science and support tools with extensive practice in careful and thorough decision making. Students will make and reflect on dozens of sustainability-related decisions, individually, within teams, and as part of the entire class, while simultaneously learning about complex adaptive systems, human psychology, and modern qualitative and quantitative decision support tools. Classes will take the form of workshops, during which instructors will support students as they analyze scenarios and co-develop adaptive plans. Student work will culminate in two final deliverables prepared collaboratively by the entire class, a proposal and a presentation to a panel of experts, that recommend from the perspective of multiple actors a multi-step theory of change, which accounts for potential future adaptations and unintended consequences. An application is required for enrollment in the course; see quarterly class information below for a link to the application.

SUST 240: Sustainability Leadership Practicum

The Sustainability Leadership Practicum provides an opportunity for students in the SUST master's program to practice, integrate and internalize core lessons from the program curriculum. Students will independently complete a 120-hour Practicum project of their own design, collaborating on a complex sustainability challenge with an outside partner and working through the types of constraints often faced by decision makers and leaders. Through the Practicum experience, students reflect on and exercise the knowledge, mindsets and practical skills developed through their SUST coursework, including the foundational program concepts of complex social-environmental systems, change leadership, and systems innovation and transformation. Ultimately, the Practicum is designed to develop each student's identity and capacity as a transformative leader through practice. While the Practicum can be carried out and the units earned at any time during the master's program, students are encouraged to st more »

Ultimately, the Practicum is designed to develop each student's identity and capacity as a transformative leader through practice. While the Practicum can be carried out and the units earned at any time during the master's program, students are encouraged to start the planning process early, allowing plenty of time to forge a relationship with a partner organization and develop a thoughtful and feasible proposal (to be approved by program leadership and the student's advisor) prior to carrying out their Practicum fieldwork. Deliverables include an analytical paper and a 15-minute final presentation. This course does not convene in a classroom setting. Instead, students are expected to attend Practicum presentation events hosted throughout the year. Enrollment is limited to students in the SUST coterm master's program.
