Research, Scholarly & Creative Activity

Sustainability-related research, scholarly and creative activity conducted by faculty and students are vital because they contribute to new ways of thinking about the challenges we face and help uncover new solutions to those challenges.

Each year, sustainability-related research and creative projects completed by our students and faculty are featured at CSULB’s annual Green Generation Mixer and Sustainability Project Showcase, which is held in coordination with CSULB’s Earth Week events in April. If you are interested in participating in the Sustainability Project Showcase, contact
