The Sustainability Curriculum Initiative supports teaching faculty interested in revising existing courses to include or augment sustainability topics, amplifying the use of library resources and services, and collaborating with subject librarians.
Sustainability plays an increasingly prominent role in the curriculum at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. In essence, sustainability courses address interconnections between economy, society, and environment. To foster the connections, the University Libraries and the Center for Teaching and Faculty Development are offering a third round of this faculty incentive program for courses taught in fall 2015 and spring 2016.
We invite you to engage in this competitive grant process that will award $1,000 to Faculty Fellows who submit successful proposals outlining efforts to adopt a new curricular strategy.
From the April 7, 2015 Information Session.
