Sustainable Enterprise Partnership
The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership links the extraordinary resources of a number of Central New York institutions to offer world-class education and research to provide transdisciplinary understanding of sustainability:
- Syracuse University's Whitman School of Management: Entrepreneurship and Supply Chain Management
- Syracuse University's L.C. Smith College of Engineering and Computer Science: Civil and Environmental Engineering
- SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry: all programs relate to natural resources and the environment
- Syracuse Center of Excellence: federation of over 200 businesses focusing on improving built and urban environments
The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) has main activities in the areas of teaching, research, and outreach. The SEP sponsors the Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE), a certificate program available to all matriculated graduate students at Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF. The SEP also sponsors sustainability-related research by faculty at Syracuse University and SUNY-ESF through competitive research grants. Finally, the SEP sponsors outreach activities through inviting internationally-renowned guest lecturers, who address the academic and business communities.
The SEP is presently staffed by the core faculty, consisting of four faculty members of the partner institutions. Funding is primarily through charitable donations.
