Antioch University and ISC-Audubon Collaborate Together

Antioch UniversityAntioch University New England (AUNE) and ISC-Audubon (ISCA) have agreed to partner together to develop sustainability and conservation-oriented programs and workshops for ISCA members, supporters, partners, and contributors. ISCA is a coalition of sustainability advocacy organizations created to foster sustainable living and lifestyles.

Through the partnership, AUNE and ISCA are exploring expansion of AUNE’s educational offerings in sustainability, sustainable resource management, environmental stewardship, and ecological literacy, to include co-branded, customized, contracted, concierge courses, workshops and programs.

AUNE will name Ron Dodson, ISCA Chairman, as a University Fellow in Sustainability Leadership. In his role as ISCA Chairman, Dodson provides oversight to the collective efforts of ISC councilmembers working towards developing partnerships with government agencies, universities, businesses and not-for-profit organizations striving to promote and foster sustainable living and lifestyles. He is the former President and CEO of the Audubon Society of New York State Inc., also known as Audubon International, which he founded in 1987. He was also regional vice president of the National Audubon Society from 1985 to 1987.

“We expect this exciting partnership to strengthen our core sustainability programming and extend AUNE’s reach. ISCA’s global network will open new education vistas for AUNE, enabling us to take another big step in furthering our mission to ensure social and environmental justice in a sustainable world,” said Dr. Stephen Jones, president of AUNE and a councilman of the International Sustainability Council (ISC).
Aside from traditional, on-campus degree programs, AUNE and ISC-A will investigate online programs, as well as customized certificate programs offered through workshops, seminars, and multi-day institutes to be delivered directly to professional organizations.

“We are proud and excited to be partnering with AUNE,” proclaimed Ron Dodson. “AUNE is a recognized leader internationally in sustainability education with graduates in leadership positions globally, and a growing, dedicated faculty with expertise in leadership development, sustainability, and environmental and social performance. We look forward to building strong, long-term relationships with many organizations, businesses, and agencies that have a desire to include and expand their sustainability education and leadership development offerings.”
