Recently added workshops include: What: Integrating Sustainability Across the Curriculum <http://www.aashe.org/calendar/curriculum-workshop-wwu-su-2018/> Where: Seattle University, Seattle WA, USA When: July 22 | Register by July 20 Contact person: Phillip Thompson <mailto:thomp...@seattleu.edu> 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 in 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 a 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 and integration easier for faculty, while also knowing how to meet both STARS and accreditation requirements.
