About the Global Sustainability Institute
Providing food, water, energy and other human needs to the world's entire population without harming the environment is a formidable task. Through Purdue's Global Sustainability Institute (GSI), the Center for the Environment, Purdue Climate Change Research Center, Energy Center, Water Community and the Center for Global Food Security are connecting existing expertise at Purdue with a pressing global issue and form the core of the initiative.
"The blending of broad-scale research and close interaction among interdisciplinary groups addressing the grand challenges of food security, climate change, energy, access to clean water, and energy security have created a unique culture at Purdue. Under the direction of Purdue's Global Sustainability Institute, this diverse group of faculty, students and other researchers are working across disciplinary boundaries toward comprehensive approaches to seek solutions that will improve life on earth." - Jon Harbor, Director, Purdue Global Sustainability Institute
