The School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University will celebrate the academic year of research and projects with an Open House, Friday, May 8, 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., in 108 Johnson Hall on the southeast end of the historic CSU Oval. Everyone is welcome and refreshments and catered snacks will be served.
The accomplishments of the 2014-2015 Global Challenges Research Teams (GCRT) and Resident Faculty Fellows will be highlighted. Research Teams are carefully selected CSU faculty groups who are funded with small grants to focus on global issues linking food, water, land management, disease, and biodiversity management as they are connected to climate change. Resident Fellows are carefully selected individual CSU faculty whose scholarly contributions to sustainability and communication of environmental stewardship will be significantly enhanced by receiving a Fellowship.
Take this opportunity to network with them and the School’s Sustainability Leadership Fellows, Visiting Fellows, leadership and staff. Learn about new developments and upcoming opportunities available at the School and meet the incoming GCRTs and Resident Fellows for the 2015-16 academic year.
About the School of Global Environmental Sustainability
The School of Global Environmental Sustainability is at the core of a growing number of exciting sustainability initiatives in research and education at Colorado State University. SoGES serves as a hub to connect CSU’s community of scholars and practitioners interested in applying interdisciplinary perspectives to large-scale environmental, economic, and social questions not easily addressed through traditional approaches.
The School was uniquely designed to reach across disciplines and colleges to forge new alliances and advance greater understanding of the challenges to achieving sustainability faced by our nation and global community. SoGES is meeting this challenge and continues to strengthen CSU’s reputation of being at the forefront of addressing the world’s sustainability issues through research, education, and outreach.
