  • iconSustainability Research Initiative

    Santa Clara University is committed to fostering a more humane, just, faith-filled, and sustainable world. Strategically, the University will develop a distinctive and substantial research focus on justice and sustainability by increasing faculty research and enhancing research collaborations in these areas.

    To advance these goals, we are launching the Sustainability Research Initiative. Components of the Initiative were developed from a series of focused discussions with faculty scholars in June of 2009.

    We anticipate that the Initiative will establish a vibrant, productive, collaborative research community focused projects related to justice and sustainability.
    Specifically, the Initiative includes research grants (up to $90,000 each year for three years), professional development grants for faculty and staff (up to $5,000 each year for three years), and a research retreat each year. The Initiative is funded by the President's Office.
