The University encourages the development of Environmental Connections (EVCN) courses for the CCC.

Over the past three years, we have provided summer funding for five faculty members who have each developed an EVCN course. In exchange for this funding, faculty members agree to develop the course, and teach it twice during the subsequent three years.
