Integrating Sustainability and Values into Education: The Centurion Charter of Sustainability
In the pursuit of a better, more sustainable world, Centurion University recognizes that higher education plays a pivotal role in shaping the values and perspectives of future leaders and global citizens. To contribute significantly to achieving SDGs and to create sustainability capabilities among students, the University has made a Sustainability Charter that serves as a guiding framework to integrate sustainability into all aspects of the University`s operations, ensuring alignment with its mission and values. It sets priorities, enhances accountability, complies with regulations, promotes a culture of sustainability, and measures progress toward a more sustainable future.
The University has introduced two dedicated units, “Climate Change, Sustainability and Organizations” and “Gender, Human Rights and Ethics,” designed to tackle various Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). These courses are mandatory for all students, regardless of their program of study.
