The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) is a collaboration among Syracuse University’s Whitman School of Management and College of Engineering and Computer Science, SUNY-ESF and the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems.


 

About Us

The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) links the extraordinary resources of four Central New York institutions to offer world-class education and research on sustainable enterprise and provide transdisciplinary understanding of sustainability:

The College of Engineering and Computer Science offers experiential programs providing opportunities for research, professional experience, study abroad and entrepreneurship.

The Whitman School, a pioneer in offering environmental law and policy courses, with top-ranked programs in the key areas of entrepreneurship and supply chain management. 

State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF), the only college in the United States where all programs relate to natural resources and the environment.

The Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy Systems (SyracuseCoE), a federation of more than 200 businesses and institutions that collaborate on sustainable innovations to improve built and urban environments. SyracuseCoE partners work on research, development and educational projects relating to clean and renewable energy, indoor environmental quality and water resources.


Research

Transdisciplinary research "integrates academic researchers from different unrelated disciplines and non-academic participants" in knowledge discovery and creation, combining "interdisciplinarity with a participatory approach."

In September of each year, the Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) issues a Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Research in Sustainable Building and Infrastructure grants, due in late October.  

 


 

 

Special Thanks!

Transdisciplinarity, the heart of the SEP, is possible only with assistance from beyond the academic community.

 

We are deeply grateful to these organizations and individuals for serving as mentors, guest speakers, project and internship sponsors, and financial supporters:
