Serve-Learn-Sustain is hosting this satellite conference for the second year in a row as part of the NSF-sponsored Integrated Network for Social Sustainability (INSS), launched by UNC-Charlotte “to encourage a greater appreciation for social aspects of sustainability with a particular focus on engineering and its allied professions.” This annual, multi-site conference is brought together via webcast.
