Does the institution have an ongoing program or programs that offer incentives for faculty in multiple disciplines or departments to develop new sustainability courses and/or incorporate sustainability into existing courses?:

A brief description of the program(s), including positive outcomes during the previous three years (e.g. descriptions of new courses or course content resulting from the program):

Full-Time Faculty are actively involved in paid Professional Development time focused on course development and renewal during May and June each year. During this time, several workshop days are devoted to integrating College priorities into the curriculum including Sustainability. The Sustainability Learning Outcome is now part of the Program and Curriculum review process for all programs. In the last three years, the Office of Sustainability (OOS) has organized and hosted panels and workshops to help incorporate sustainability across the curriculum. In 2017, 2018 and 2019, Fleming has also held workshops as an AASHE Centre for Sustainability Across the Curriculum, as well as one-one meetings with individual faculty during this period to bring a Sustainability Learning Outcome into required courses across the College. This resulted in 89% of Diploma Programs across the College including the Learning Outcome in required courses in 2017/2018 academic year.

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

This is paid time for full-time faculty that provides additional resources and guidance on sustainability content in courses as well as affirmation of sustainability elements already being taught in courses. The Office of Sustainability updated the resources in 2018 to reflect the UN Sustainable Development Goals and additional resources provided through SDSN Canada.
