Graham Sustainability Institute


The Graham Institute is a University of Michigan Provost’s unit fostering sustainability at all scales by leading stakeholder-centric activities that systematically bring together and harness talents across all U-M schools, colleges, and units. Our work spans: 1) Translational Knowledge – leading collaborations among academic, practitioner, and other stakeholder communities to advance scholarship and influence real-world decisions; 2) Transformative Learning – cultivating sustainability leadership by helping students engage across disciplines, experience diverse perspectives, think systemically, and pursue action-based learning throughout the world; and 3) Institutional Leadership – fostering sustainability excellence across U-M by leading discussions, planning, and coordination for university-wide sustainability strategies and activities.
