Sustainability in Higher Education: Inclusive Participation

Return to the Sustainability in Higher Education initiative page here

Through the duration of this project, GCSE has worked to engage a wide audience of stakeholders, including faculty, students, program directors, scholars, and employers across sectors. We convene stakeholders regularly in formal groups, such as the Sustainability Education Community of Practice, as well as public events, such as our quarterly roundtable discussions.


We have assembled a high-level advisory council called the Sustainability Education Leadership Advisory Council (SELAC). The Advisory Council members offer their expertise through participation in quarterly meetings or panel discussions, and bringing diverse perspectives to emphasize our priority for emphasizing justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion. The current advisory council includes:
