Implementation Programs: Incorporating Geoscience throughout the Curriculum

InTeGrate supports a series of implementation programs to incorporate geoscience into programs designed to reach a diverse array of students, including those from groups underrepresented in the geosciences and students whose dominant interest or field of study lies outside the geosciences.

These implementation programs will strive to:

The implementation programs will result in the development of at least 26 models of ways to bring geoscience to a diverse range of disciplines, institutions, and networks, as well as provide the documentation and resources necessary to help other groups implement similar programs.

Grant-Funded Implementation Programs

Beginning in 2014, institutions or clusters of institutions will be able to apply for \$50,000 grants to develop approximately 20 new implementation programs. These programs will:

We anticipate that each project will involve at least five faculty members and be led by a coordinator or administrator. A steering committee of qualified community members, established in association with NAGT, will review proposals and select those to be funded based on the likely success of the program, its potential to model a new and transferable approach, and its ability to support a diversity of institutional settings and a diversity of students.

Building on workshops offered by the Building Strong Geoscience Departments program, InTeGrate workshops extend understanding the relationship between program offerings and the diverse workforce equipped to address the resource and environmental challenges faced by society. These workshops and the web resources they produce form a foundation for teams as they develop proposals for implementation programs. These program-level workshops began in 2012 and include:
