We explore the organizational learning and change mechanisms that can assist holistic understandings of sustainability knowledge and practice to be shared across the university and other sectors of society. Our qualitative study describes the experience of a Chinese university in employing structural and visionary boundary objects that produced profound sustainability-related innovations. We argue that experience provides a pointed lesson in how universities and their business schools may engage with wider society in order to further share understandings of sustainability.
