A number of faculty are engaged in sustainability research (based on STARS v2.2).
Sustainability research is research and scholarship that explicitly addresses the concept of sustainability, furthers our understanding of the interdependence of ecological and social/economic systems, or has a primary and explicit focus on a major sustainability challenge.
The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals illustrate the breadth of sustainability and major sustainability challenges.
