Sustainability Education Network Interview Report
This report synthesizes the perspectives of faculty across the University of Minnesota in an ambitious project to determine priorities, preferences, and challenges for creating a more coherent set of graduate sustainability education offerings across the University. Thirty interviews were conducted with faculty from twelve of the University’s schools and colleges. As a descriptive synthesis of these interviews, this report provides important evidence about faculty and staff priorities for sustainability education at the University of Minnesota. The University of Minnesota offers a broad range of opportunities for graduate students to engage in issues of sustainability. However, interviews with faculty and staff from across the University indicate that both faculty and graduate students have difficulty connecting and collaborating with those in different departments and programs.
