Our Academic Collaborators

We work in conjunction with Auburn Academic Sustainability Program, which focuses on training students in the concepts and application of sustainability, expanding the incorporation of sustainability into the curriculum through faculty training workshops, and fostering interdisciplinary research through obtaining extramural funding for sustainability initiatives. The minor in sustainability exposes students to topics such as natural capitalism, the interdependence of economics environment and social equity, systems thinking, climate change and the future of energy, and biomimicry in human engineered systems.
