Research Projects

Sustainability research at SJSU focuses on ecological integrity, economic prosperity, and social and intergenerational equity.

Research projects address a sustainability challenge (such as climate change or poverty) and further our understanding of the interconnectedness of societal, economic, and environmental issues.

Sustainability research promotes culturally appropriate solutions that concurrently support economic prosperity, social well-being, and ecological vitality.
