Now revamped and revitalized, the new Levenick iSEE Teaching Sustainability Fellowship Program offers an opportunity for faculty and instructors across campus to join a cohort of peers in a yearlong program to develop, implement, and evaluate their new course offerings in sustainability.

All faculty participants receive $1,000 - $2,000 as a stipend for participation in the Levenick iSEE Teaching Sustainability Fellowship program.
