Selection Process and Filters

The initial Case Study Library was built by searching online databases for all cases that pertained to the topic of sustainability. Four additional criteria were required:

After applying these filters to the original group of 133 teaching cases, just 48 cases made the cut. These 48 cases represent a choice of sustainability resources that, in a broad sense, meet the Fowler Center’s definition of sustainable value.

Contact the Fowler Center for assistance or to suggest additional cases to be included on the list.
