Sustainability is a field written in pencil, at best, according to School of Sustainability Professor of Practice George Basile. In an April 2017 interview with GreenBiz, Basile explains that sustainability is always evolving, requiring its practitioners to be keen learners. "When you implement sustainability even today, very quickly people find out what it’s like to be a pioneer," he says. "You’ll find yourself in new territory." The students who enroll in sustainability courses at ASU are not intimidated by this prospect. In Basile's opinion, School of Sustainability students are among the best. "They’re willing to learn. They’re motivated. They come with a great breadth of backgrounds and they really are solution-oriented," he explains. "They’re looking at 'how do we build the future we want.'"
