The CUNY Institute for Sustainable Cities was created out of the vision and financial support of Theodore Kheel, prominent labor negotiator, lawyer, and environmentalist. Forged as part of a strategic alliance between Kheel’s environmental organizations the Nurture Nature Foundation and the City University of New York, CISC has focused on serving as a catalyst through which cutting-edge knowledge about sustainability practice and theory is translated to a wide range of audiences within CUNY and beyond. Mr. Kheel’s commitment to CUNY in part emerged out of his ambition to help New Yorkers change the way they see their relationship with the local environment. And from his perspective, a great place to achieve this is through a link to CUNY – as “CUNY is New York.”

Over the years, Theodore Kheel’s connection to the local environment scene has continued to grow through his actions and philanthropy, and through actions of his family. Below is a list of other Kheel-associated entities and their web links. CISC is happy to acknowledge its ‘sibling’ organizations is this way.
