Global Sustainability Studies Initiative
By promoting the study of sustainability in a global context, the Global Sustainability Studies Initiative (GSSI) strives to help individuals develop the skills and abilities necessary to solve sustainability problems which are transdisciplinary and global in scope. The group achieves its goals through merit and non-merit based scholarships, fundraisers, and other events to raise money for members to study abroad. It serves as a network for those who have practiced sustainability study abroad and those who have not.
