Magnolias Project — Sustainability Across the Curriculum
The Office of Sustainability invites you to enhance your teaching and engagement with sustainability issues by participating in the Magnolias Project May 15-16, 2013 on the Wake Forest campus. No prior experience with sustainability-related issues in the classroom or in research is necessary, and faculty at all ranks and career stages are welcome!
This innovative approach to curricular change, modeled on the nationally renowned Piedmont Project (Emory University) and Ponderosa Project(Northern Arizona University), provides faculty with an intellectually stimulating and collegial experience to pool their expertise. Faculty who would like to develop a new course module or an entirely new course that engages issues of sustainability and the environment are encouraged to apply.
Detailed information is available on the project’s webpage. Applications are due April 19, 2013. Participants will earn a $500 stipend.
