Sustainability Task Force

The MCSI Faculty Sustainability Task Force was created by past Provost Patty Beeson in 2014 to assist and guide the university’s efforts to (1) catalyze multidisciplinary sustainability research and education throughout the university, (2) integrate research and education to impact campus operations and quality of life, and (3) propel Pitt to achieve national recognition in sustainability.

Since then it has become a welcomed hub for faculty with broad interests in sustainability research, education and outreach. It is a place to share interests, network and build collaborative partnerships across disciplines.
