Center for Sustainable Energy at Notre Dame

Faculty

Faculty at the University of Notre Dame who conduct energy-related research, teach energy-related courses, or have interests in energy-related or environmental policy development, infrastructure, and commercialization are members of the cSEND faculty. cSEND faculty who conduct research in one of the three thrust areas of the Sustainable Energy Initiative (SEI) – Cleaner Fossil, Safer Nuclear, and Transformative Solar – are considered SEI faculty. These faculty represent the various departments within all colleges and schools at the University of Notre Dame (Colleges of Arts & Letters, Engineering, and Science; Schools of Architecture, Business, and Law), creating an environment that readily supports the advancement of multi-disciplinary, innovative research and scholarly initiatives in sustainable energy. 

cSEND provides many benefits to faculty and associated researchers at Notre Dame, from research support services to community building activities. These efforts are intended to support faculty and the growth of energy-related research at Notre Dame.
