Putting Sustainability into Action:
New Strategies for Courses and Programs

October 26-28, 2017
Florida A & M University, Tallahassee, FL

Sustainability has emerged as a central theme for teaching about the environment. Whether it is from the perspective of science, economics, or society, sustainability is of high interest to students, including those who are traditionally underrepresented in the geosciences. This workshop is open to multi-disciplinary teams of faculty, administrators, and sustainability officers who work with community members and have opportunities to incorporate and strengthen sustainability in courses and programs. Building on the InTeGrate HBCU Geosciences Working Group experiences and expertise, teams will develop culturally responsive methods and practices for putting environmental and social sustainability into action in courses and programs at their institutions. We encourage applicants from all disciplines, especially, education; natural and social sciences; geosciences; engineering; and humanities.

The application deadline is October 1, 2017. (extended)
