Sustainability-related research efforts across campus include such programs as Blue Gold and the Industrial Assessment Center. Engineering professors are researching renewable energy, energy efficiency, and energy storage. City planning professors are researching sustainable development and active travel options, including collaboration and leadership on the transportation analysis and recommendations for the climate action plan. The Strategic Plan acknowledges the importance of sustainability research.
However, research activities are often decentralized, and faculty doing sustainability research or coursework may not be aware of others’ efforts. Sustainable SDSU is aiming to connect faculty researching sustainability issues. If you are involved in sustainability research, please email [email protected].
