Centre for Social and Sustainable Innovation

The Centre for Social and Sustainable Innovation (CSSI) at the Gustavson School of Business was formed to bring sustainability and social responsibility into the education, research, operations and culture of our school. The CSSI helps staff and faculty integrate sustainability and social responsibility into all of Gustavson’s educational offerings. From core courses to international exchanges, we offer practical support to meet the school’s commitment to the United Nations Global Compact’s Principles for Responsible Management Education. We help the people who study and work at the Gustavson School of Business:

We’re one more way that Gustavson steps up to make the world better.

If you’ve got questions or ideas, we’d love to hear from you! cssi@uvic.ca or 250-853-3721

 

At Ideafest 2018, Chief Anne Mack, Judith Sayers, Johnny Mack and Matt Murphy described the Toquaht Nation's new framework for assessing economic development possibilities using environment, economy, culture and community as the markers.
