The Partnership for Sustainability Education (PSE) coordinating team announces three awardees of $1,000 mini-grants for sustainability curriculum development and one Phase II Case Study grant of $400 for 2011. PSE mini-grants are intended to support curriculum development work to infuse sustainability-related content into Ithaca College courses or other educational experiences. Such curricular development may include new courses, development of new components for existing courses, or revision of existing courses to deal with issues relating to sustainability. Online course proposals are encouraged, as are proposals that involve community partners in developing projects that will benefit their organization and meaningfully engage students.
Project Look Sharp is IC's Media Literacy initiative with the School of Humanities and Sciences. We host an average of 10 internships per semester and attract students from all majors! View our diverse list of internships for Fall 2011 below.
In this online class, we learn via internet readings, videos, podcasts, guest lecturers and discussions that link students and experts. The course will make you deeply aware of water as an essential element for all life as it explores questions such as: Why is water an important part of many religious rituals? Why is water considered 'Blue Gold'? What is your water footprint? Does water have memory? We will use perspectives from the arts, humanities and sciences, and also focus on the global politics of water and sustainability. Participate any time of day, from anywhere with high speed online access. No pre-reqs. 3 cr. LA -- CLTC 22100 - Water = Life May - June Summer Session.
