The National Science Foundation recently awarded Ithaca College a three-year grant of $149,000 to be used to develop a curriculum focusing on the concept of environmental sustainability, using as its vehicle a formal partnership with EcoVillage at Ithaca.

Specifically, the goal is to develop a number of courses which will utilize EcoVillage as a field station or "living laboratory" where classroom instruction is joined with field application. This colloquium deals with this project.

A Faculty Development Colloquium, Thursday, February 20, 12:10-1:00 pm, Clark Lounge
The Ithaca College-EcoVillage Partnership: Fostering Sustainability through Teaching

The panelists were coauthors of the NSF grant proposal and now serve as the grant's coordinating team. The colloquium will serve as an introduction to the grant's vision, the activities funded by the grant, and the planned course offerings, as well as an introduction to the larger concept of sustainability. It will also serve as an invitation to faculty to participate in other grant-funded activities, including funding opportunities for additional curriculum development.

This presentation is part of the Faculty Development Colloquium Series sponsored by the Faculty Development Committee and the Office of the Provost and coordinated by Susanne Morgan.

Please bring lunch if you wish; cookies and beverages are provided. Even if you need to arrive late or leave early, you are welcome.
