SUST Faculty Research  (Coming Soon!)

Faculty across the university engage in sustainability-related scholarly activity.  We are currently gathering a comprehensive inventory of faculty research, grants, and other scholarship that intersects with sustainability. 

Please add yours to the mix by completing this survey.

We are adopting the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education's guidelines for sustainability research:

"Sustainability research is research that leads toward solutions that simultaneously support social wellbeing, economic prosperity, and ecological health.  It includes research and scholarship that: 

  • Explicitly addresses sustainability and/or furthers our understanding of the interconnectedness of social, economic and environmental issues;  
  • Contributes directly toward solving one or more major sustainability challenges; and/or 
  • Engages community members with the aim of combining knowledge and action to achieve positive social, economic and environmental outcomes (e.g., participatory and community-based research and engaged scholarship)."

If you have any questions, please contact Elise Amel, faculty director of the Office of Sustainability Initiatives.
