Abstract
This profile of the Leadership for Sustainability Education (LSE) master’s program at Portland State University provides an example of how leaders are being prepared for careers in the field of sustainability education. We share some of the underlying values and assumptions of the program, and provide an overview of the program’s key learning areas, which include developing self-understanding and commitment, a systemic view of the world, biocultural relationships, and tools for sustainable change. We also highlight two recent LSE graduates, including their current work in sustainability education and excerpts from their final comprehensive papers in which they reflect on their key learning in the LSE program.
