Education SWATeam (Proposed)
Meeting minutes from the 11/4/2020 Education SWATeam meeting. The team was joined by Gretchen Forman of the Grainger College of Engineering Office of First Year Experience and Creen Ahmad from Illinois Student Government.
The Education SWATeam was newly formed in the Fall of 2019 by students, faculty, and staff willing to help achieve the University of Illinios iCAP 2015 goals and to contribute to the iCAP 2020. We are aware that students care passionately about sustainability and are looking for it to be incorporated into their college experience.
The members of this committee are charged with presenting projects that meet one of these three education goals:
- curricular education (new and/or improved courses in sustainability, minors, certificates)
- getting instructors to incorporate a sustainability segment into courses, perhaps as a lecture or as a student project
- general campus education (non-curricular, e.g. presence at events)
