Center for Governance and Sustainability

at the University of Massachusetts Boston

Vision and Mission

Our vision is to become a leading intellectual hub linking analytical rigor and policy action on issues of environment, development, and sustainability governance.

The mission of the Center is to provide state-of-the-art research, policy input, a forum, and training tools to build a corps of new professionals committed to academic excellence, public service, and innovative leadership in solving complex sustainability challenges from the campus to the global level. 

With initial research programs in global environmental governance, global development governance, and organizational sustainability, the Center seeks to engage students, faculty and staff across disciplinary, institutional, and political boundaries.
