Faculty Sustainability Research Think Tanks

The grand challenges facing society require attention from interdisciplinary teams of experts, each bringing their unique contributions and perspectives to the table. Join the GCSC and the Sustainability Office for Interdisciplinary Faculty Sustainability Research Mixers, where we’ll enjoy refreshments, share interdisciplinary research, and examine strengths and opportunities around a variety of themes.

All mixers are from 5:00 – 7:00 pm in the College of Law, 6th floor Flynn faculty workshop room.

Justice, Equity, and Diversity in Sustainability Research

Equity is one of the main pillars of sustainability, yet it is often left out of the dialogue. How can we best integrate issues of equity into sustainability teaching and research?

REGISTER HERE  The mixers are open to all interested faculty and include opportunities for faculty “PechaKucha” style presentations, followed by facilitated discussion. Registration for the events will open ~3 weeks prior to the event.

Interested in presenting? Check the presenter box on the registration form. We welcome faculty from across campus and look forward to contributions from a broad range of disciplines.
