One of the goals of the partnership between the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and the university is to explore social and behavioral science focused on environmental issues. A new article explores social and behavioral studies and highlights the work of two teams, one led by Sara Soderstrom, Organizational Studies and Program in the Environment, and Todd Schifeling of the Erb Institute, and another led by Stephanie Preston and Colleen Seifert from the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. It also discusses four new projects that recently launched. In addition to working with EDF experts, U-M faculty are collaborating with researchers at a number of other institutions across the nation.

U-M Faculty Include:

  • Sara Adlerstein Gonzalez, Associate Research Scientist, U-M School for Environment and Sustainability (SEAS)
  • Robert Goodspeed, Assistant Professor, U-M Taubman College of Architecture and Urban Planning (TCAUP)
  • Colleen Seifert, Professor of Psychology, U-M College of Literature Science and the Arts (LS&A)
