Having been part of the Faculty of Management since 1989, SRES officially joined the Faculty of Science on April 1, the start of the 2023 fiscal year.

For the past three years, while the Faculty of Management has been engaged in conversations about restructuring, SRES has also been exploring a move to another Faculty.

“Environmental and sustainability-related issues are quintessentially important to management education,” says Dr. Michelle Adams, director of SRES. “But that’s not all we do. Management education is not our singular goal.”

Despite no longer being part of the Faculty of Management, the School’s offices will remain in the Kenneth C. Rowe Management Building. The Faculty of Management’s acting dean, Dr. Mike Smit, says the change will take some getting used to. “SRES has been part of the Faculty for 30 years, and there are strong ties among faculty, staff, and students. We will miss them, but we know those collaborations will continue.”

The Faculty of Management’s new structure will go into effect in July. Though SRES is moving, topics related to sustainability and social impact will continue to be explored in Faculty of Management programs.
