Michigan State University has earned global accolades for its progress in working toward the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals — including No. 3 in the United States and No. 66 globally for SDG 17, “Partnerships for the Goals.” That standing was credited in part with research conducted by Jianguo “Jack” Liu — University Distinguished Professor and the Rachel Carson Chair in Sustainability — which has made significant scholarly contributions in developing an integrated framework for achieving SDGs around the world.Screen Shot 2021-04-21 at 3.51.09 PM
