The Office of Planning, Sustainability and Project Management along with the Chancellor’s Committee on Sustainability and Energy Education and Research Subcommittee are pleased to invite UIC faculty to apply for the Teaching Sustainability Initiative’s 2020-2021 Course Development Cohort. In its second year, this program is intended to intentionally grow UIC’s sustainability course offerings to all students.

The Teaching Sustainability Initiative consists of a 1.5-day program that will provide faculty of all subject areas an overview on how to amend and/or create curriculum to include sustainability concepts. The workshop will explore how we can meaningfully integrate sustainability—broadly defined—into our classrooms, as well as access to a network of experienced instructors who will provide assistance and feedback as you formulate a dynamic syllabus and curriculum. Faculty will receive a stipend for their participation. The deadline for applications is February 28, 2020, applications will be notified of their status no later than March 27.
