Professors: Earn $500 for Integrating Sustainability in your Curriculum via the Chesapeake Project

Event Type(s): Other

The Chesapeake Project is a two-day workshop designed to encourage UMD faculty to integrate sustainability across all academic disciplines. Over the past five years, 115 professors have participated in the project and integrated assignments, discussions, or an overarching theme of sustainability into more than 120 courses in all 12 colleges.

Watch the video and learn more:

Participants learn about core concepts of environmental, economic, and social sustainability from resource experts who help the participants find connections between sustainability and their existing course content. This integration across the disciplines helps students think critically about their local environment, fosters interdisciplinary learning and problem solving, and prepares students to find solutions to complex 21st century problems. The project addresses the University's goal to educate all students about sustainability.
