Integrating Sustainability into Curriculum:
How to engage faculty, enhance student skill-based learning and meet AASHE STARS requirements
Kevin Wilhelm: CEO of Sustainable Business Consulting (SBC) and a faculty member at several universities including the University of Washington- Tacoma, Chaminade and Western WA.
Katie Secrist: Consultant at SBC who has helped integrate and build out sustainability curriculum at several universities.
Integrating sustainability into curriculum is often the hardest challenge towards advancing sustainability on campus. While many institutions and faculty want to integrate sustainability across their offerings, they run into time and resource constraints, as well as faculty & institutional challenges.
Even though sustainability content to curriculum is a requirement for STARS and has become a requirement for accreditation in many schools (Business – AACSB, etc.) it faces barriers to implementation.
This workshop will focus on the ins and outs of successfully integrating sustainability into curriculum. It will be hands on workshop that will identify common obstacles, solutions for overcoming them and highlighting best practices. Participants will leave with a better understanding and clear road map for making learning better for students, integration easier for faculty, while also knowing how to meet both STARS and Accreditation requirements.
