Sustainability Faculty Fellows

A full description of this program and the application form are at the Center for Teaching and Learning site.

The University of Vermont Sustainability Faculty Fellows Program creates a learning community, a multidisciplinary faculty cohort engaged in a yearlong exploration of sustainability, the scholarship of teaching and learning, and tools for collaboration and community building. The goal is for participants to integrate sustainability into their courses, either new or existing courses.

Welcoming its first cohort in 2009, the program brings together faculty members from across disciplines via luncheons, a two-day January retreat, and online communications.

The Sustainability Faculty Fellows Program is a joint endeavor of the Office of Sustainability, the Environmental Program, the Center for Teaching and Learning, and the GreenHouse Residential Learning Community at the University of Vermont, in partnership with the non-profit educational center Shelburne Farms.  The program builds on strong environmental academics at UVM and high levels of student and faculty engagement in sustainability to create a peer-learning community for faculty. Participants develop skills to implement sustainability concepts into their courses and receive $400 towards professional development activities.
