Description: http://sustainability.temple.edu/ As an urban institution that is deeply engaged in the community, Temple University's commitment to sustainability can have a profound impact on the health and quality of life of a large and diverse population within Temple and its surrounding community. The university is positioned to be an important educational resource for teaching sustainability, with its three pillars of environment, economics and social justice. It is committed to demonstrating the value of those principles through its own example and through the activities it sponsors in the community. Temple aims to serve as a model for similar urban institutions and to burnish its national reputation for excellence and commitment to principled policy and action. To reach its goals for sustainability, Temple University has made a commitment to examining all relevant decisions for their environmental impact; assessing current practices and performance; establishing goals; prioritizing plans based on environmental benefits as well as cost effectiveness; providing adequate capital investment to fund the programs; implementing the plans; managing the projects effectively and conducting periodic review and updates of program goals based on changing internal and external constraints. The expected outcome of these steps is the creation of a culture and expectation for environmental action at all levels. Temple University's work will proceed in three broad areas: 1) Advancing academic initiatives and research; 2) Creating sustainable campuses; 3) Improving outreach and engagement. Faculty have been actively engaged in sustainability focused research. As a result of their individual research, the faculty authored the following fifty publications: 1. Asthana, S.

School's environmental commitment:  
1: 1. Course Development: a. Have created new courses address sustainability topics for both undergraduate and graduate students. Developing courses at the graduate and undergraduate levels b. Developed cross listed programs with departments across campus. c. Sustainability themes (social and environmental stewardship, governance and ethics) transcend a majority of classes across the Fox School.
2: 2. Fox School mission and values reflect the importance of addressing sustainability in our curricula, research, student experiences and outreach. In 2009, the faculty, staff and students engaged in a vision and mission building strategic planning activity. Throughout the year we offered many opportunities to reflect on the schools vision, values and mission establishing a roadmap for the future – one where the principles of sustainability are valued and integrated into school practice.
3: 3. Created the Fox/STHM Sustainability Network: A network of faculty and staff who are interested in sustainable business development and who bring those interests to the classroom. The members of the Sustainability Network provide thought leadership to Fox and STHM by: defining our broad concept of sustainability; identifying ways we can more effectively integrate sustainable practice into the management of our school; creating the message and brand we wish to promote; working on strategies to integrate sustainability across the business curriculum; and encouraging collaborative partnerships for research and curricula development. This dynamic network grew from a grass root initiative led by only a handful of faculty. Today, the network continues to grow with more than 50 members actively engaged in scholarship, teaching and providing enriched student experiences related to our sustainability themes.
