Sustainable Communities Transdisciplinary Area of Excellence

Faculty Hiring Priorities

The Sustainable Communities Area of Excellence (TAE) seeks proposals from departments, programs and deans related to hiring in the area of sustainable communities. Based on deliberations within the TAE and from its fall 2013 conference, the TAE has identified eight research areas to strengthen existing research and build our capacity as an institution with expertise in sustainable communities. We anticipate affiliated hires in these areas, and would welcome discussions with departments or deans interested in pursuing hiring in these competencies.
