New Initiative Support
As part of our mission to cultivate sustainability leadership through transformative learning, the Graham Institute continually seeks to support innovative ideas brought to us by U-M faculty. Here are a few examples of new initiatives we've supported:
- The Michigan Environmental Crimes Project: The Graham Institute supported more than 100 Michigan Law students in developing a searchable database of EPA-investigated criminal pollution prosecutions. The project documented environmental crimes to, hopefully, help society avoid repeating them in the future.
- Engineering Sustainable Systems (SNRE & Engineering Dual Master's Degree): The Graham Insitute helped build momentum for this dual-degree master's degree program during its first three years (2007-2009) by providing scholarships to attract top performing students.
