ER-15: Sustainability Research Identification
Environmental Sustainability Manager
Has the institution developed a definition of sustainability research?:
A copy of the institution's definition of sustainability research:
Sustainability Research focuses on a principle of sustainability (such as social equity or environmental stewardship); addresses a sustainability challenge (such as food insecurity or climate change); or furthers our understanding of the multidisciplinary nature of societal and environmental challenges. Sustainability research provides critical data necessary to address these challenges and create solutions to support economic prosperity, societal well-being and ecological health. At the University of Dayton, we see connections between curriculum, research and community action. Because of the direct link between sustainability research and the real world challenges that it addresses we see much of the research conducted at this institution as having a link to sustainability.
