Call for Submissions: Page Prize for Sustainability Issues in Business Curriculum

The Darla Moore School of Business at the University of South Carolina is honored to announce the 4th annual Dr. Alfred N. and Lynn Manos Page Prize for Sustainability Issues in Business Curricula.

The Page Prize has two objectives: to encourage efforts to expose business students to state-of-the-art sustainability knowledge relevant to the natural environment and to demonstrate the Moore School's commitment to promoting environmental sustainability in business education.

Although the objectives of the Prize specifically concern the natural environment, full consideration will be provided for submissions concerning a range of sustainability dimensions that are demonstrated to be relevant to the natural environment.  Thus, we welcome diverse submissions from topical areas including good governance, social entrepreneurship, cross-sectoral partnerships, and poverty alleviation germane to fostering business understanding and practice that promote environmental health and/or stewardship.

Each year, the school adds the new winning submissions to its database of high-quality teaching/curricular materials related to sustainability, which it houses on this website and through the Moore School's Partner Page on The Aspen Institute’s

Who May Submit

Faculty, doctoral students, and others are invited to submit non-published materials related to innovative curricula (program design and core components), courses (including full syllabi) and/or substantial course components (e.g., case materials, simulations, and course segments) appropriate for rigorous and relevant teaching about sustainability and business.

Submissions must be original and made with the full consent of all authors for free public access to the submitted materials for use in business education anywhere in the world. 


The Grand Prize is $1,000, plus a framed print of Aegean Sea #6 certifying the award. Honorable Mention prizes will also be awarded at levels of $250 each. Each finalist will receive a print of Aegean Sea #6. The winners will be chosen by a three-member faculty committee from the University of South Carolina. The database of top submissions is available for adoption by business faculty around the world to use in their home institutions.
