Today I received notice that my Sustainability Enhancement Fund (SEF) grant proposal was fully funded by the University of Alberta Office of Sustainability. Dubbed the “Strategies for Sustainable Business Case Writing Project,” this year-long funding will support the publication of case studies that examine challenges of and solutions for addressing sustainability concerns in managerial and organizational contexts. These case studies will be available for use by business school faculty around the world in teaching the next generation of business leaders. This is my first grant from the SEF.
On Earth Day, April 22, 2016, I was humbled to receive the University of Alberta’s 2016 Campus Sustainability Leadership Award, even more so after learning I was nominated by one of my former MBA students. First bestowed in 2012, the award recognizes a student or staff member who shows dedication, impact, and leadership in integrating sustainability into teaching and learning. I am the first faculty member to receive the award.
