This credit was marked as Not Pursuing so Reporting Fields will not be displayed.

SII was designed to meet the criteria above but without funding the institute or a similar initiative WWU cannot meet this requirement at this time.

Under the auspices of the Faculty Sustainability Academy, Steering Committee, faculty members from the Huxley College of the Environment, College of Business and Economics, College of Science and Technology, College of Humanities and Social Sciences, Fairhaven College, and Woodring College of Education, collaborated in the winter 2009 through fall 2010 to design a series of three sustainability literacy courses. With a professor from Huxley serving as course coordinator, 12-16 different faculty members from the various departments and prepared lectures as a series of guest instructors. The classes are intended to serve as “feeder” courses to the majors found in each of the colleges.

The faculty received financial and staff support from the sustainability institute initiative to fund this program.
