Established in 2007, the Sustainability Research Centre conducts transdisciplinary research on regional environmental change and helps regions transition towards sustainability.
The Centre is located within USC’s Faculty of Arts, Business and Law, and has academic members from the Faculty of Science, Health, Education and Engineering. We are committed to educating the next generation of sustainability scholars and leaders: the Centre’s researchers include almost 50 higher degree by research students, who help to lead the teaching of USC’s undergraduate major and minor in sustainability.
The Centre is led by the Director, Prof Roy Sidle, with the support of a four-person external Advisory Board.
The Sustainability Research Centre strives to solve persistent and emerging issues related to the social and environmental nexus at local through global scales, using innovative, transdisciplinary applications of social, economic, and environmental sciences to foster long-term environmental and social resilience.
