Abstract: B. F. Skinners 1981 Selection by Consequences was a call for us to use the science of behavior to meliorate world problems. With the emerging research, models, and practices of the last 20 years, more behavior analysts are directing research and applied work toward cultural problems such as poverty, education, organizational safety, and climate change. Over the past four years, a team at Fresno State has used the principles of behavior analysis at the level of culture to develop more integrated and sustainable practices across all aspects of the University. This has led to the Institute for Water and Sustainability at Fresno State and a new position at the University: Associate Vice President for Water and Sustainability. The function of this institute is to coordinate research across various colleges, coordinate best practices on campus through Facilities, develop a sustainability minor, coordinate student and facility projects, and to educate and interact with the greater community.
