Advisory Board

steering-comm-sept2014The iSEE Advisory Board was formed shortly after the Institute’s establishment to ensure that its activities are synergistic with other campus efforts in the area of sustainability research and education. The Board is made up of faculty leaders at the top of their respective fields, as well as a few student representatives. Members’ specialized areas of research are quite diverse — embodying iSEE’s vision of interdisciplinary collaboration. Along with Interim Director Madhu Khanna, the Board guides the vision and mission of the Institute.
