Does the institution have an ongoing incentives program or programs that meet the criteria for this credit?:

A brief description of the program(s), including positive outcomes during the previous three years:

The Campus Sustainability Fund ($25k/y) is available for any group on campus to request funds, including faculty for course development. For example, in S14, an interdisciplinary group of faculty were awarded a grant to develop and implement a class that focused on the natural and cultural history and attributes of our main hill campus. The students mapped waling and biking trails, identified sensitive species, marked trees along walking paths and created slides that explain the Clarkson family history at various key points on our campus.

A brief description of the incentives that faculty members who participate in the program(s) receive:

Faculty received funds for class supplies and a modest fund for summer salary. They also had an opportunity to work within an interdisciplinary group (faculty and students) in a very project based experience.
