Hanley Sustainability Institute releases 2018-2020 report, ‘A growing role at UD’

By Mark Gokavi

The Hanley Sustainability Institute at the University of Dayton has released an impact report covering the calendar years of 2018 through 2020, which included a major expansion of HSI, which was founded in 2014.

“A growing role at UD” summarizes key events during the span which includes hiring of its executive director, adding faculty and staff, introducing a fast-growing sustainability major and graduate certificate, student leadership and experiential learning, national recognition as a sustainability leader and being part of an award-winning paper on the path to carbon neutrality at UD.

HSI Executive Director Ben McCall said the report provides a look back at successes with partners such as Facilities Management while HSI completes its first strategic planning process that will look ahead to HSI’s next phases.

“We’ve organized this report around the themes emerging from that process: Developing Leaders for a Just Future, Evolving the Institution, Building Relationships with the Community and Leaning into Research,” McCall writes. “The work of HSI and its sustainability partners at UD has been consistently gaining visibility, both in terms of media attention and campus sustainability recognitions. It seems clear HSI and UD are poised for continued success in the years to come.”
