The Golisano Institute for Sustainability was founded in 2007 following a $10 million donation from Thomas Golisano, founder of Paychex Inc. and an RIT trustee. The institute focuses on research and education in sustainable design, pollution prevention, green manufacturing and environmental policy and management. Its doctoral program is one of the first in the world to focus on sustainability.
