George Mason University puts research and scholarship into action to support a just, prosperous, and sustainable world.  Mason aims to connect members of the Mason community, and collaborate with other communities, policy-makers, businesses, and organizations, so together we can more effectively address the world’s pressing sustainability and resilience challenges. Mason launched its Institute for a Sustainable Earth to lead this applied research, while our Patriot Green Fund and OSCAR provide grants to support students’ sustainability-related scholarship.

Nearly 200 faculty members in 32 academic departments, and numerous students are involved in sustainability research and scholarship.  These centers include the Center for Climate Change Communications (4C), Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies, and Potomac Environmental Research and Education Center, among many more.  For more information on Mason research centers and scholars pursuing sustainability research, please visit Mason’s Sustainability, Environment and Climate research center page.
