Dr. Sanjay Sharma, of the University of Vermont, discusses the ways a Dean can provide support for sustainability research and initiatives in the article, “Pathways of Influence for Sustainability in Business Schools: A Dean’s Eye View,” recently published in Organization & Environment. Read the abstract below:
While faculty members are champions and implementers of change in business schools, deans play a critical role in generating support and resources for fostering sustainable curriculums. The pathways of change can be outside-in by connecting the agendas and visions of external stakeholders to support internal change or inside-out by selling the faculty’s vision to external stakeholders to generate resources. This essay draws lessons from the outside-in and inside-in pathways for developing sustainable curriculums and programs in two very different business schools in Canada and the United States.
