Mission:We bring people together to learn how to live and manage sustainably by solving problems and capitalizing on opportunities in ways that simultaneously enhance economic, social and environmental vitality. 

Purpose: To educate current and future leaders of business, government, nonprofit, and educational institutions about managing sustainably by focusing on products, processes, and services that add value to the organizations and are beneficial to people and the planet.

Our strengths are our multi-disciplinary approach, our network of academics, executives, consultants and NGO representatives, and our ability to create collaborative dialogue about solutions to complex sustainability issues. Since our founding in 2005, we have achieved significant accomplishments in our priority strategic areas of sustainability: research, education, and services.

ISE is supported by the University administration, ISE Corporate Partners, the ISE Advisory Board that includes a diverse cross-section of business leaders from the private, public, and nonprofit sectors, along with a number of faculty members from FDU’s Silberman College of Business.
