In 2006, he was a recipient of a Fulbright Senior Specialist grant hosted by the Faculty of Management (FOM), University of Primorska, Koper, Slovenia to explore ways to bring sustainability into the curriculum and to help design sustainability into the FOM-sponsored Management International Conference (MIC).  A second Fulbright Senior Specialist grant was received in 2009 to return to the Faculty of Management to teach and collaborate on research projects.  He joined the Editorial Board of the International Journal of Sustainable Economy in 2007 at the request of FOM.  He has served on the MIC Program Board since 2008.  He will be giving a keynote speech at the MIC,2001 event.

His current work involves moving sustainability into undergraduate and graduate curricula, with emphasis on management education, and across the physical dimensions of the campus.   In 2010 he received funding to hire Hawaii Pacific University’s first Campus Sustainability Coordinator, a position created to promote sustainability in every dimension of university life.  He is one of two faculty members to serve as liaison on behalf of HPU’s membership in the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), a network of over one thousand universities world wide committed to campus sustainability (http://www.aashe.org/).
