School's environmental commitment:  
1: The Fowler Center is an academic center that bridges the gap between theory and practice for both management practitioners and scholars. Through intimate, meaningful collaborations with individuals from a diverse range of organizations, the Fowler Center guides managers to embed sustainability in their core business, creating value for society and the environment in ways that create even more value for their customers and shareholders. Projects include developing a sustainability-themed business case study library and organizing a globally attended Global Forum- Business as An Agent of World Benefit in October 2014 that is structured like an appreciative inquiry summit and feature prominent speakers on topics related to sustainable value. Faculty affiliated with the Fowler Center include David Cooperrider, PhD, Fairmount Minerals Professor of Social Entrepreneurship and one of the inventors of appreciative inquiry (along with Ron Fry, PhD , Professor of Organizational Behavior); and Chris Laszlo, PhD, originator of the concept of “embedded sustainability.”
2: In the second year of Weatherhead’s MBA program, students choose from two practicums that deepen their mastery of design in management and sustainable value through hands-on project work, reinforcing theory with on-the-ground practice in ways that can surprise, instruct, and enlighten. The MBA Institute in Sustainable Value and Social Entrepreneurship is one of the practicum options and was named one of the 10 Most Innovative Business School Courses by Forbes. The concept of sustainable value shows how environmental and social challenges can turn into business opportunities when we capitalize on entrepreneurial and “intrapreneurial” initiative. Students work as teams of consultants with locally headquartered companies and nonprofits that benefit directly from their knowledge and creativity.
3: Weatherhead students can get involved in several clubs and volunteer opportunities promoting sustainability: Net Impact, Case For Community Day, the Student Sustainability Council, the Squire Valleevue Farm (where the university operates a local food program), and the Weatherhead Green Team. Weatherhead’s Net Impact club partnered with Accenture to add the Accenture Eco Challenge (an online carbon footprint tool) to the university president’s Climate Action Plan (CAP). Our Career Management Office can help students seek sustainability-related internships through Climate Corps, Net Impact, the Institute for Sustainable Development, and other organizations. Finally, incoming MBA students can apply for fellowships with the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value.
