Faculty contribute to the interdisciplinary Center for Sustainability and Master of Science in Sustainable Tourism in many and varied ways reflecting the multidisciplinary interest on the campus in sustainable tourism and a generous willingness to engage in the research, teaching and outreach activities of the center. Examples of these contributions include service on the MS-ST Faculty Graduate Committee, on thesis and non-thesis projects, on search committees, in recruiting and mentoring students, on external funding activities, on special projects and initiatives, in teaching core courses, on interdisciplinary research and publication efforts and on hosting visiting scholars, among others. Faculty affiliates are encouraged to cross over with other disciplines in research interests to the extent possible in order to become fully aware of, and take advantage of, the many interdisciplinary approaches and opportunities.

Primary focus has been on the scholarship of learning, which includes experimenting with methods of instructional delivery or the use of instructional technology, adapting pedagogical approaches from widely-differing disciplines, and developing and testing new technical content to prepare students for professions and leadership positions in business and industry. This also includes research and development of best practices for professional and adult education for business and industry (workforce development).
