As an institute of higher education, academic pursuits are at the core of Colorado College’s mission. Through ongoing efforts, the Colorado College Office of Sustainability and AASHE® are working to incorporate sustainability learning objectives broadly across the curriculum. The Sustainability Across the Curriculum workshop is designed to help faculty develop an outline or course module that broadens the sustainability course offerings at their institution. Participants engage in exercises that foster a broad and deep understanding of sustainability, including reflection, field trips, and group discussion to support the development of a greater sense of place.
The workshop has resulted in a number of courses, both new and existing, which have been adapted to incorporate a component of or discussion on sustainability. Many of these courses, which have been designated as Sustainability-Focused (T1) or Sustainability-Related (T2), are listed on the Sustainability Courses page
The 2017 Sustainability Across the Curriculum workshop will take place on Thursday/Friday May 18th-19th (immediately following 8th block) 8am-6pm. Tenured and tenure-track faculty from all departments are encouraged to participate. Participants are eligible for a total stipend of $1000; $500 will be payable upon completion of the workshop. An additional $500 is payable upon approval of sustainability course designation application, with a target set for a year from the workshop date. Contact Ian Johnson (Ian.Johnson@ColoradoCollege.edu) with questions or concerns.
