This year TFISE and UK's Appalachian Center are partnering to present the Sustainability Forum (formerly Showcase) to highlight accomplishments of UK’s faculty and students who conduct interdisciplinary research in environmental and sustainability science and policy.  We welcome contributions in the areas of Environmental Science, Public and Environmental Health, Economic and Social Policy, Political Ecology, Manufacturing and Materials Science as well as disciplines that provide creative and innovative ways to bridge the gap between these areas and the general public. Results of the 2014 President's Sustainability Advisory Council's Sustainability Challenge Grant program will be presented, and 2015 winners will be announced during the awards ceremony.  Faculty and staff are welcome to participate. 

Awards for best posters will be presented to the top graduate and undergraduate student posters.
