Curriculum and Research

Curriculum

A number of Ithaca College faculty have already adapted their curriculum to include content on sustainability. This is a new learning and teaching paradigm, one that requires holistic, systems-level thinking instead of the more normal "reductionist" disciplinary-focused approach to teaching.

We continue to support faculty efforts to learn how to teach in this new way with programs such at the annual Finger Lakes Project sustainability curriculum development workshop and mini-grants to incent faculty to develop whole new sustainability-focused courses or to create modules for existing courses to infuse considerations of sustainability into curriculum.

As part of our ongoing sustainability outreach efforts, we also share our sustainability education model with others outside the institution.
