The Initiative for the Planet: Progress Indicators

Increase the impact of UD scholarship on environmental science, technology and policy and their integration.

  • External funding of research in energy, the environment and sustainability, especially through University institutes and centers and as multi-investigator, multidisciplinary grants
  • Growth in interdisciplinary graduate programs in energy and the environment
  • Number of doctoral students in energy and the environment
  • Number of new faculty hires in energy and the environment—in the natural, social and behavioral sciences and in engineering; the number of cluster hires in these areas; the number of hires that involve searches across colleges
  • Number of partnerships with public and private entities that advance energy and environmental sustainability
  • Number of University lectures/roundtables in energy and the environment that engage the academic and external communities

Reduce the environmental footprint of the University and its community.
