2009 SF IGERT Summit at Southern University in Baton Rouge

q

SFI partners with the Nelson Mandela School of Public Policy and Urban Affairs at Southern University and A&M College – Baton Rouge on an NSF Integrative Graduate Education and Research Program (IGERT) for American doctoral students interested studying sustainability from both an engineering and a public policy perspective. At this year’s annual summit, students and faculty from both schools made presentations. SF IGERT student research projects range widely, from policy issues that impact nearby areas (such as Great Lakes Water Quality at Michigan Tech and Hurricane Katrina at SUBR) as well as those with world-wide impacts, such as energy, urban/rural sustainability, wetlands management, water distribution systems, materials, sustainable manufacturing, biofuel production, and green chemistry, among other topics.
