Research & Working Groups

Research & Working Groups

Sustain SU aims to provide unique research opportunities, foster opportunities for research collaborations, and to showcase community research and work in sustainability. Our research is guided by the SU Sustainability Summary Report

The Research Team

The Research Team is responsible for providing research support for Sustain SU’s current initiatives, and for exploring the viability of potential projects. The team is expected to create and submit one original paper/report to an academic publication each academic year.

In order to connect community and enhance sustainability research on campus, we are looking to enhance our blog into a community portal or research hub.

Working Groups

The Social and Environmental Responsibility Committee (SERC) acts to enhance the Students’ Union in its ongoing efforts to be socially and environmentally responsible in the administrative, political, and business arenas.

Research Partners

Sustain SU aims to maintain partnerships with University affiliates who promote academic and experiential research opportunities for undergraduates. We are currently working with Community Service Learning and will become more involved with the Undergraduate Research Initiative (URI), and Learning Experiences through Applied Projects (LEAP) programs throughout the academic year.
