Annual SoGES Open House set for May 8

Johnson Hall SoGES Open House


The School of Global Environmental Sustainability at Colorado State University will celebrate the academic year of sustainability research, teaching and engagement with an Open House Monday, May 8, 3-5 p.m., in 108 Johnson Hall.

SoGES leaders will highlight the accomplishments of the 2016-17 Global Challenges Research Teams and Resident Faculty Fellows at the event. Research Teams cultivate new interdisciplinary partnerships of CSU faculty who are funded with small grants to focus on innovative sustainability research. Resident Fellows are CSU faculty who accelerate their scholarly contributions to sustainability.

The research topics covered by the teams and fellows span a wide range of global issues, including environmental governance, environmental justice, food, water, energy, climate change and biodiversity.

Attendees will have the opportunity to network with the School’s partners, Sustainability Leadership Fellows, Visiting Fellows, leadership and staff.

About the School

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.
