Hi everyone,

I am working on my PhD in environmental studies at the University of Colorado Boulder. I did my masters thesis on institutionalizing sustainability in higher education back in 2010 and am interested in continuing down this path of research. I was hoping that current practitioners or researchers in this field might have a sense of what the really pressing questions are today? I am interested in integrating sustainability into the curriculum from both an organizational change perspective and/or a program evaluation perspective. You can email me directly at

Hey Rebecca,

Do you mind sending me a link to your publications or places where I can access them?
I need them for my thesis on strategies for institutionalizing sustainability. At the moment I'm doing the prep work like looking for various sources, cases of successful implementation etc. And I came across this thread of yours. Actually at my university library there's a couple of dissertation on institutionalizing sustainability which I find really interesting. Both my supervisor as well as dissertation writer who's helping me with gathering materials say it's good thought of checking out research papers and dissertation. That's why I'd love to check yours.
Please PM links or places where I can buy your publication if you can.

Either way, keep up the good job.
And have a lovely day
