Graham Undergrad Sustainability Scholars

Top performing undergraduates from across the university come together through this innovative sustainability leadership program that now has 44 alumni and 55 students currently enrolled. As part of the 11-credit leadership-development program, Scholars take the hands-on “Sustainability and the Campus” class, whereby they plan and implement practical sustainability projects for the U-M campus. Projects in 2013 included implementation of reusable take-out food containers (called “Go Blue Box”) at the Michigan Union, the promotion of environmentally friendly “ozone cleaning” techniques in U-M Housing and working with the City of Ann Arbor to green rental housing for students.

Dow Sustainability Fellows Program

Forty master's and professional-degree students from eight schools and colleges at the U-M were selected to become a Dow Sustainability master’s fellow. Ten doctoral and six postdoctoral students also joined the program, which brings together individuals from many backgrounds to find interdisciplinary, actionable, and meaningful sustainability solutions on local-to-global scales. The program was made possible with the support of the Dow Chemical Company.
