In this regard, the successful candidate will benefit from the enthusiastic support of a team of outstanding faculty, students, administrative colleagues, and alumni and friends of the Whitman School and Syracuse University. This individual will play a key role in the Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) program, an award-winning, transdisciplinary initiative of the Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) that links the resources of the Whitman School with the Syracuse Center of Excellence in Environmental and Energy systems, the State University of New York College of Environmental Science and Forestry, and the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and other emerging sustainability-related programming on campus.
Successful candidates will have a proven record of excellence in scholarship and teaching, and meet the standards for tenure at Syracuse University.
