Detailed Information:
The vision of Michigan Tech's Sustainable Futures Institute (SFI) is to become internationally recognized for its teaching, research, and outreach contributions to the field of sustainable systems. We will develop a new meta-discipline in sustainability science that integrates engineering and technology elements of industrial ecology; the scientific elements of environmental assessment and modeling; and the economic, human behavioral elements of the social sciences that support environmental decision making.

We seek to make science relevant to the citizenry so that it serves society and helps to inform decisions. Education and technology transfer are key elements toward attaining this vision and demonstrating its utility in the Great Lakes and other regions.
