One year after attending the week-long training, Will Hong and Michael Sheridan co-founded the Sustainability Faculty Learning Community and the Sustainability Faculty Fellows Program, along with Ro Millham and Lisa Mitten. Michael Sheridan developed a MBA-level course called Strategic Corporate Sustainability in which his students developed and proposed the Green Revolving Fund. President Christian and Cabinet approved the Green Revolving Fund proposal in the spring of 2016. Michael Sheridan also developed a sustainability concentration for the Business Management major, which will begin in the fall of 2016.
