Does the institution have a program to encourage student sustainability research that meets the criteria for this credit?:
Yes

A brief description of the institution’s program(s) to encourage student research in sustainability:

The Undergraduate Research Program (URP) invites applications for a ten-week mentored summer research grant. Up to 15 fellowships will be awarded with stipends of $3,500. In addition, up to $500 in funding for supplies, services and travel expenses. Mentors of selected research fellows will receive a summer stipend of $2,500.Interdisciplinary projects that consider the intersecting roles of diversity and sustainability are particularly encouraged. For example, projects may explore how environmental stressors (such as climate change, fracking, mining, chemical pollutants, etc.) disproportionately impact vulnerable populations or how vulnerable communities are rallying to creatively seek solutions. Such projects may receive additional support (e.g., in the form of increased mentor stipend, research budget, etc.) from the College of Letters and Sciences, pending approval from the Dean and commitment to present project results at the Fall 2015 Diversity Forum .
