CESR, whose mission is to empower business leaders to drive solutions to environmental, social, and ethical challenges, strives to be a center of excellence on ESG and Sustainability.
To help position Leeds nationally and globally as a thought leader in ESG and Sustainability, CESR hosts a Faculty Affiliates program. The program has three objectives:
- Support, fund, amplify, and celebrate innovative faculty research.
- Facilitate the integration of ESG & Sustainability into the curriculum (e.g., by providing relevant case studies, guest speakers, real-world consulting projects, and other resources with interested faculty; possibly funding curriculum development; and helping to coordinate efforts among faculty teaching different courses covering similar topics).
- Build and nurture a community of faculty at Leeds who support CESR’s mission (e.g., by co-hosting ESG or sustainability related seminars in each division to facilitate interdisciplinary dialogue and exchange of ideas).
