The Ray C. Anderson Center for Sustainable Business (“Center”) at Georgia Tech Scheller College of Business is delighted to announce the 2020-21 Graduate Sustainability Fellows and Undergraduate Sustainability Ambassadors. This year, 25 graduate and 14 undergraduate students will deepen their engagement in sustainability by working on projects and participating in activities related to sustainable business. The programs for Fellows and Ambassadors deliver on the Center’s commitment to empowering students to become leaders in building a sustainable and prosperous future.
Fellows this year represent all Scheller College MBA Programs (Full-time, Evening, and Executive) as well as the Master of Sustainable Energy and Environmental Management (MSEEM) Program in the School of Public Policy. Ambassadors represent ten different majors, with business administration being the most common.
The parallel programs for graduate and undergraduate students are co-organized by Arianna Robinson, Center assistant director of business operations, and Kjersti Lukens, Center program support coordinator. The Fellows and Ambassadors programs are managed by Robinson and Lukens, respectively.
The organizers observed a spike in the number of applications this year. What is the reason for the change? Lukens believes that “sustainability is becoming an increasingly prominent topic both on campus and in the workplace.”
