Many institutions struggle to promote liberal arts education in today's changing world. Hampshire College provides a model for how resource-limited campuses can leverage their sustainability assets to support curricular and community transformation. Hampshire is reinventing itself for a sustainable future, using its environmental assets (a campus farm and living building) to support a new transdisciplinary curriculum and student experience. This session will help you leverage environmental assets in applied transdisciplinary learning to prepare students for a sustainable future.
Learning Outcome 1: Identify campus environmental assets that lend themselves for use in transdisciplinary learning and community building.
Learning Outcome 2: Describe how environmental assets can support sustainable curricular and student experience transformation.
Learning Outcome 3: Outline strategies to engage students, faculty, and staff in institutional transformation.
Learning Outcome 4: Advocate for sustainable infrastructure as a teaching tool and community-building asset.
