A brief description of any internal sustainability professional development and training opportunities that the institution makes available to staff:
Sustainable Susquehanna is a faculty training program that is offered each spring to accepted faculty throughout the institution. The intention of the program is to help faculty meaningfully integrate sustainability – broadly defined – into their classrooms. Though we start by taking a close look at SUNY-Oneonta and Otsego County, we invite participants to engage in local/global comparisons. Campus faculty who have received training from the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) facilitate and catalyze discussion of a green curriculum and its integration and role in the broader community.
Participants receive an honorarium of $1000 upon completion of a new or revised syllabus (with the intent to teach the course within the year following participation). Participants also join in a fieldtrip and discussions that will offer opportunities to extend research and teaching horizons across disciplines and create new networks with fellow colleagues.
A brief description of any external professional development and training opportunities in sustainability that are supported by the institution(e.g. through payment, reimbursement, or subsidy):
Estimated percentage of regular staff (full-time and part-time) for which sustainability is included in performance reviews (0, 1-24%, 25-49%, 50-74%, 75% or more) :
