Center for Sustainability + Business


To discover, create, assemble, and share knowledge about the connections between business and environmental sustainability. We will do this by attention to science, encouraging curiosity and passion, questioning assumptions, and engaging skeptics.

Main Activities

Research: Identifying research issues and publishing a research agenda and working papers.

Teaching: In our university, centers do not offer courses or degrees, but the individuals involved in the center would also be involved in teaching initiatives (e.g., a working proposal for a masters degree in sustainable business).

Outreach: Convening local/regional practitioners.

Other: Program of undergraduate research—the “Sustainable Business Studio.”
