Graham Sustainability Institute


The Graham Sustainability Institute is a University of Michigan (U-M) Provost’s unit. We foster 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 focuses on three key areas:

Translational Knowledge

We lead vibrant collaborations among academic, practitioner, and other stakeholder communities to advance sustainability scholarship and to influence decisions that protect the environment and enhance quality of life for present and future generations.

Transformative Learning

We cultivate sustainability leadership by helping students engage across disciplines, employ systems thinking, experience diverse stakeholder perspectives, and pursue action-based learning opportunities throughout the world.

Institutional Leadership

We advance U-M's presidential initiative—Planet Blue—by serving as the University's designated sustainability liaison, and by guiding institutional discussions, planning, and coordination for U-M sustainability activities.
