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:

Main Activities

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.

Organizational Structure

The SEP is presently staffed by the core faculty, consisting of four faculty members of the partner institutions. Funding is primarily through charitable donations.
