Recently added workshops include:

What: Integrating Sustainability Across the Curriculum 
Where: Seattle University, Seattle WA, USA
When: July 22 | Register by July 20
Contact person: Phillip Thompson <>
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. Register now
