Sustainable Enterprise Partnership announces 2012 Fetner Sustainable Enterprise Fellow
The Sustainable Enterprise Partnership (SEP) announces that Michael Lenox, Samuel L. Slover Professor of Business at the University of Virginia's Darden School of Business Administration, will be the SEP’s 2012 Fetner Sustainable Enterprise Fellow.
As the Fetner Sustainable Enterprise Fellow, Lenox will be on the SU campus April 9-12 to work and meet with faculty, students and the business community and share his internationally recognized expertise in the intersection of business strategy, public policy and the natural environment.
On Monday, April 9, Lenox will discuss sustainability-related research trends and opportunities with SU and SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF) faculty and graduate students. Later in the week, he will lead a luncheon discussion for faculty and Ph.D. students on “Sustainability in the Curriculum,” based on his leadership experience with this topic at Darden and Duke University. There will additionally be presentations from Whitman sustainability-focused curriculum innovation grant recipients.
During his time in Syracuse, he will also meet with graduate students enrolled in the SEP’s Certificate of Advanced Study in Sustainable Enterprise (CASSE) program and will guest teach the CASSE course “Managing Sustainability.”
On Wednesday, April 11, at 8 a.m., Lenox will share his research on trends in green tech entrepreneurship and innovation with the business community at a breakfast in the Whitman School’s Milton Room. To register for this event, contact Carolyn Hilleges at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Fetner Sustainable Enterprise Fellow is made possible through a gift by Hal Fetner ’83, president and CEO of Durst-Fetner Residential, and his wife, Nina. This recognition is given annually to an academic expert in sustainable enterprise whose three- to four-day residency involves direct, in-depth work with faculty and students.
