The Enterprise Sustainability and Resilience Lab (ESR-Lab) is a research unit at the University of Colorado – Denver Business School.  ESR-Lab’s mission is to prepare the next generation of business and community leaders with the knowledge, tools, and skills to tackle today’s most pressing business, sustainability, and resilience challenges. The grand challenge that unites our research and outreach is to redefine the relationship between business, the communities they serve, and environment in which they are situated to drive business impact, innovation, and sustainability transformations.

ESR-Lab has limited funds each year to support graduate student research assistantships (RA). CU Denver Business School students are given priority. Please contact me at <> to inquire about current RA opportunities.
