Why should you join the Social Sustainability Network?

  • If you are a community member, to collaborate with PSU faculty, staff, and students on projects that promote social sustainability.
  • If you are a faculty member or student, to engage in scholarly and practical exchanges that push forward the boundaries of knowledge about social sustainability.
  • If you are a researcher interested in developing social sustainability projects, to engage in sessions focused on research proposal development and funding.
  • If you are a scholar who wants to refine and publish your work, to contribute a chapter to a new edited volume on social sustainability.

Who funds the network and what will it do?

The Social Sustainability Network has received a Miller Foundation Grant through the PSU Center for Sustainable Processes and Practices. The funding will help the Network to operate as a living laboratory, acting as a forum in which scholars and practitioners can share, learn and collaborate. Network members will have access to: research development sessions; scholarly exchanges in a colloquium series co-sponsored by the Center of Professional Integrity & Accountability and inventories of PSU social sustainability projects, related research tools and funding opportunities, and educational offerings on social sustainability.
