Academic Sustainability Interest Group is forming - are you interested?


Contributed by Marian Brown

The Center for Faculty Excellence and the Sustainability Initiative are interested in forming an academic sustainability interest group to exchange ideas about infusing sustainability content into curricula across disciplines and to strengthen and foster greater student and faculty engagement in sustainability initiatives here on campus and in the local community. The group will likely convene once a month or so in the Center for Faculty Excellence on the 3rd floor of the Gannett Center.  Times for the meetings will vary to allow more faculty  to attend and participate.

The first meeting of this new Academic Sustainability interest group will be on Tuesday, October 23, from 12:10-1:05pm in the Center for Faculty Excellence. Bring a brown bag lunch; we will provide beverages and cookies.   

Please let Laurie Wasik know if you are interested in being included in these sustainability interest group meetings, and if you can make this first meeting.
