A brief description of the institution’s professional development opportunities on sustainability in the curriculum:
Annual Faculty Development Workshops provide strategies to prepare students of all disciplines to address sustainability challenges in their professional, civic, and personal lives. Participants learn to integrate sustainability into courses using active, place-based, and experiential learning. There is no cost to attend. Faculty who complete the two-day workshop and submit a revised syllabus are eligible to receive a $500 stipend to enhance the learning environment for their students.
Day one will introduce concepts and materials and provide opportunities for small and large group activities and discussion. Highlights include:

Day 1:
-Inspiration, ideas and exploration of sustainability and UN Global Goals
-Information on campus sustainability initiatives and use of campus as a living laboratory
-Exploration of interdisciplinary connections to other faculty and programs

DAY 2:
-Day two invites day one participants as well as past workshop attendees to share best practices, collaborate on integrating specific sustainability topics into course content, and learn from one another
