A brief description of the sustainability-focused immersive program(s) offered by the institution:

Colgate offers a series of Extended Study opportunities which provide an immersive experience for students. As participants in an extended study, students attend class together for the full semester, then travel with the faculty member teaching the course to continue the study on location for 2-3 weeks. Extended study opportunities at Colgate that are sustainability-focused take students to Uganda, Norway, Costa Rica, Australia, Japan, Bangladesh and Russia.

Colgate also offers two sustainability-related semester-long off campus study opportunities in Australia and Santa Fe, New Mexico.
