PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies

The PSEG Institute for Sustainability Studies (ISS) at Montclair State University was founded in 2009 to play a transformative role in transdisciplinary research and education to address the relevant sustainability issues of our time.

Sustainable development is a catch-phrase for the need to reconcile human dominance of the earth’s natural resources with the planet’s ability to provide them over the long-term. In part it is a need borne of recognition that the human condition has placed potentially irreversible stresses on the relationship between the environment and human progress, and the recognition that more needs to be done to reverse these and other unsustainable practices.
