Apply for faculty workshop on sustainability in the curriculum

If you would like to apply for the next Faculty Workshop on Sustainability in the Curriculum, to be held August 14-15, 2014 (10 a.m.-5 p.m.), fill out the extremely brief application here by May 12: http://form.jotform.us/form/33024522854146

In the innovative definition used by UNCG, sustainability involves “the enduring interconnectedness of social equity, the environment, the economy, and aesthetics.” Participants may be existing experts in any aspect(s) of sustainability, complete novices, or anywhere in between. (Past participants may apply again as long as they submit a different course.)

The goals of this workshop are:

  1. to increase the number of new and existing sustainability courses at UNCG,
  2. to improve the quality of sustainability education at UNCG, and
  3. to strengthen the community of scholars and teachers involved in sustainability education at UNCG.

About a dozen faculty participate in the two-day workshop, and they will submit revised syllabi by the end of the calendar year in which the workshop is held. The workshop is organized by UNCG Academic Sustainability Coordinator in collaboration with UNCG faculty and staff and the UNCG FTLC. Upon successful completion of the workshop, faculty participants will receive add pay of $250.
