The American University Sustainability Fund supports campus sustainability research projects proposed by students, faculty, staff, alumni and neighbors.
Faculty Sustainability Research
Sustainability research focuses on a key principle of sustainability (such as social equity or environmental stewardship); addresses a sustainability challenge (such as climate change or poverty); or furthers our understanding of the interconnectedness of societal and environmental challenges. Sustainability research leads toward solutions that support economic prosperity, social wellbeing, and ecological health.
