Foster Resilient Communities
SMU promotes a holistic approach towards the physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing of students, staff and faculty, and promotes a diverse and inclusive community on campus.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) from the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development represent an urgent call for action for all countries - developed and developing - to protect people and the planet. See how our Sustainability Strategies map onto the 17 UN SDGs.
