Susan Allen-Gil, Peter Bardaglio, and Liz Walker (director of Ecovillage at Ithaca) co-presented "Educating for Sustainability: Ithaca College and EcoVillage at Ithaca Workshop" at the annual meeting of the American Association of Colleges and Universities in San Francisco in January.

This session explored a highly innovative approach to educating undergraduates for global sustainability, a collaboration between Ithaca College and EcoVillage of Ithaca, funded since 2001 by the National Science Foundation. The goals of "applying science to sustainability," which partners College faculty and EcoVillage professionals and educators, are to advance undergraduate learning in sustainability and to encourage students to become involved in science-based community ecological projects, using EcoVillage at Ithaca as a living laboratory.
