Associate Professor and Sustainability Coordinator

Does the institution have a student-run enterprise, such as a cafe, through which students gain sustainable business skills?:
A brief description of the enterprise:
Miami University's EDUN Live on Campus is the country's first student-run business that enables campus organizations to customize ethically-produced T-shirts. It is hosted within the Center for Social Entrepreneurship in Miami's Farmer School of Business. Edun Live on Campus is a collective of these efforts, featuring campus, community, and licensed apparel with increased student involvement. It continues Edun's commitment of paying a living wage, and changing lives in the communities in which students work. Students gain leadership; sales, marketing, and entrepreneurship skills; while working with a real-world social venture. Miami University's EDUN Live on Campus sold more than 25,000 shirts in a little more than three years.
