Craig Watson, Monmouth College
In the last three years I have worked with Monmouth College students on campus recycling projects, and as a member of a civic group (a few MC faculty belong) called "Green Solutions" on town/gown collaborative projects, using some of the college's senior courses in Citizenship (Integrated Studies core capstone courses) as vehicles for community outreach. Projects in at least five of the fourteen Citizenship courses presently offered directly address sustainability (campus and community) in a variety of ways. For example, a "Green Initiatives" course generated a successful town/gown proposal for a wind farm south of town. Another iteration of that course has analyzed and reported on ground and well water in Monmouth. Still another surveyed consumer and recycling habits in the community.
