In AY 2013-14 the newly-appointed Academic Sustainability Coordinator held two Sustainability in the Curriculum Workshops for Faculty (August 12-13, 2013, and January 8-9, 2014).

2) to improve the quality of sustainability education at UNCG, and
3) to strengthen the community of scholars and teachers involved in sustainability education at UNCG.
Circa one dozen participating faculty submit syllabi in advance, participate in the 2-day workshop, and submit revised syllabi by the end of the calendar year. The workshop is organized by UNCG Academic Sustainability Coordinator in collaboration with UNCG faculty and staff and the UNCG FTLC.

In addition to all meals and snacks, and the camaraderie and edification, faculty participants receive add pay of $250 if they successfully complete the workshop and submit a new or revised syllabus.
