Abstract:

The purpose of undertaking this research project was to evaluate the likelihood of success of a Coalition of Graduate Programs in tackling issues of Sustainability. 63 Graduate Programs in Canada were analysed through the lens of 5C’s: Creativity, Critique, Coalitions, Cases and Changemaking. Different configurations of schools and programs were developed and tested to see how they could work together. An action plan was put together comprised of student and faculty workshops in order to bring the idea into practice. There are challenges to executing an inter-disciplinary model including university and departmental funding challenges and politics. These can be overcome by creating a system of rewards and recognition and working with coalitions of the willing.
