In an effort to highlight existing sustainability-related research at IUB, the ERWG created the Sustainability Research Clearinghouse.  The site profiles eight researchers, displaying a photograph and biography of relevant research projects.  Additionally, 53 researchers are listed in a searchable format with links to their faculty homepages.  Each is designated as conducting sustainability focused or sustainability related research.
