Integrating Sustainability Across the Curriculum: How to engage faculty, enhance student skill-based learning and meet AASHE STARS requirements

This pre-conference workshop will be offered on Sunday, July 22, at the Innovation for Sustainability Conference at Seattle University.

Integrating sustainability into curriculum is often the hardest challenge towards advancing sustainability on campus. While many institutions and faculty want to integrate sustainability across their offerings, they run into time and resource constraints, as well as faculty & institutional challenges. Even though sustainability content in curriculum is a requirement for STARS and has become a requirement for accreditation in many schools (Business – AACSB, etc.) it faces barriers to implementation. This workshop will focus on the ins and outs of successfully integrating sustainability into curriculum. It will be a hands on workshop that will identify common obstacles, solutions for overcoming them and highlighting best practices. Participants will leave with a better understanding and clear road map for making learning better for students and integration easier for faculty, while also knowing how to meet both STARS and accreditation requirements.

Register here Deadline is July 20.

Seattle University / Western Washington University is one of 13 regional AASHE Centers for Sustainability Across the Curriculum.
