Santa Clara University Environmental Justice and Integral Ecology Workshop

July 10, 2023 - July 14, 2023

Santa Clara University’s (SCU) Center for Sustainability hosts annual workshops and invites interested faculty and educators from all colleges and universities to participate in one of three online workshops:

  • June 26 – 30: Sustainability across the Curriculum workshop prepares instructors to design a module or course on sustainability in any discipline, and supports campus sustainability leaders to design a Sustainability across the Curriculum program at their institutions.
  • July 10 – 14: Environmental Justice and Integral Ecology workshop offers instructors a deeper focus on how to teach about environmental justice and integral ecology in any discipline, and helps campus sustainability leaders to design an Environmental Justice across the Curriculum program at their institution. See below for all the details.
  • July 17 – 21: Pedagogy for Sustainability and Justice workshop helps instructors to design project-based, experiential, and community-based learning, and community-engaged and campus-engaged research projects; a parallel track prepares campus sustainability leaders to design a pedagogy-focused professional development program at their institution.

July 10 – 14: Environmental Justice and Integral Ecology

This workshop is for instructors in any discipline who want to develop or deepen their teaching about environmental justice and integral ecology. A parallel track for staff and faculty members who are leading campus curriculum reform efforts addresses how to design and implement an Environmental Justice across the Curriculum program at your institution. While the workshop is especially geared to colleagues at Jesuit and Catholic colleges and universities, participants from all institutions are welcome. The workshop  will equip participants with a deep understanding of environmental justice and integral ecology, and how they can be integrated into any discipline. Modules introduce the central concepts, and support participants to design learning goals and assignments in their disciplines on multiple issues (such as food justice, water justice, law and advocacy, health, urban planning, community economic development, and more). The workshop also helps instructors to relate academic learning to students’ vocations and community engagement for environmental justice and integral ecology.

The workshop begins with a live orientation on Zoom on July 10, 9:30 – 10:30 am (Pacific Time). Thereafter, participants can complete the material at their own pace between July 10 – July 14. Optional office hours are offered on Zoom each day. Participants receive online feedback from the workshop instructor and their cohort throughout. $100 registration fee for participants not affiliated with Santa Clara University.

Those who apply by Mon, April 3, 2023 will receive top priority. Applications close May 5, 2023. Expect a response to your application within one week of submission, starting April 10.
