Key Objective


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:

  1. First-year student sustainability seminar - This is being pursued through New Student Orientation.

  2. Sustainability general education (GenEd) credit - This was proposed through the Illinois Student Government.

  3. 100-level courses - iSEE is talking with the leadership for the Engineering 100 course.

  4. Sustainability workshop - This is being pursued as a Sustainability Best Practices Video.
