Carl Sivels, who is pursuing a Master of Business Administration with a concentration in Sustainability, has accepted a one-year research fellowship with the federal Office of Land and Emergency Management. His project aims to expand knowledge and methods regarding beneficial use and Sustainable Materials Management (SMM), a systemic approach that goes beyond recycling to use and reuse materials more productively over their entire life cycles.
