Sustainability Across the Curriculum Faculty Development Workshops
These faculty development workshops provide strategies and examples for enhancing teaching aimed at preparing students to address the challenges of sustainability in their professional, civic and personal lives regardless of discipline.

Faculty Learning Community

Faculty Learning Communities are designed to build community and enhance scholarly teaching and learning. Several FLC’s explore methods and resources that can lead to effective student engagement toward sustainability. The Sustainability Across Curriculum FLC functions as a cross-disciplinary working group for infusing sustainability principles into academic curricula.

In the 2018-2019 academic year, the FLC will focus on the UN Sustainable Development Goal of Zero Hunger-- addressing food insecurity and waste. Project Drawdown calculates that reducing food waste is a key target in the fight against carbon emissions reductions for climate change, and providing fair access to food is critical for social sustainability. We will draw on a network of experiences from hunger in Athens and beyond in order to have meaningful discussions on multilateral solutions to the crisis of food insecurity.
