We conducted an initial search of department websites to review what areas of research were listed for each faculty member. We then provided this list to Deans of each school to have them confirm, correct or add faculty. This will be conducted every two years in order to keep the list current.


A brief description of notable accomplishments during the previous three years by faculty and/or staff engaged in sustainability research:

Some accomplishments of note include documentaries regarding the social impacts of pollution in the Gulf of Mexico (E. Coffman, Communications), public health opportunities through green jobs (L. Hackett, Bioethics), and the economic impacts of globalization (M. Cinar, Business).
