Fowler Center for Sustainable Value
Research from the Organizational Behavior Department has led to the creation of the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value. At the heart of the Center is World Inquiry, a global search for the many ways dynamic leaders in the business sector are putting their people, imagination and assets to work to benefit the earth, from its ecosystem to the needs of its vast, diverse population.
The Center takes the work being done by business practitioners, civil sector actors, and the academic community in business-in-society innovations and synthesizes their knowledge and experience into one powerful, central location. Topic of focus include sustainability, social entrepreneurship, and corporate social responsibility (CSR).
