Broaden Sustainability Education (Proposed)
Student members of the Engagement Team, Hiba Ahmed and Miranda Johnson, are currently working on crafting a sustainability roadmap of resources for the university, which the team can utilize for our future recommendations and projects.
The iCAP objective #6.1 is: Broaden the availability of sustainability education across the entire curriculum, beginning with first-year student orientation and continuing through commencement, with at least one of four proposed methods implemented by FY24.
In the iCAP 2020, four methods for broadening sustainability education were identified:
First-year student sustainability seminar - This is being pursued through New Student Orientation.
Sustainability general education (GenEd) credit - This was proposed through the Illinois Student Government.
100-level courses - iSEE is talking with the leadership for the Engineering 100 course.
Sustainability workshop - This is being pursued as a Sustainability Best Practices Video.
