Penn State Smeal to open Center for the Business of Sustainability
Things have been quiet on the blog but not behind the scenes! We have been working hard and waiting for formal approval for a new center and a new website. With those behind us. Now you will be hearing more from us...let us know what you think and what you'd like to hear more about.
(from Smeal news) "The Penn State Smeal College of Business will launch the Center for the Business of Sustainability (CBoS) in 2020 to support how business meets the growing demand for resources in a socially just and environmentally sustainable manner.
The center aligns with Smeal’s vision to be one of the very best business schools in the world, producing leading-edge business research brought to life in active learning environments by an outstanding faculty, and preparing graduates for productive careers in business.
The Center for the Business of Sustainability will allow Smeal to carry that vision beyond the walls of the Business Building and the University Park campus of Penn State. CBoS, by advancing and disseminating research and best practices, will engage and equip businesses while inspiring and educating future leaders.
'Penn State’s land grant mission, our global research enterprise, and our longstanding institutional commitment to sustainability provides the ideal platform to launch a sustainable business center,” said Penn State President Eric Barron.'"
