Building Ecoliteracy: A General Education Track in Sustainability

The development of four interdisciplinary courses with student engagement activities and a lecture series, study group, and workshop series, linked by the theme of ecoliteracy.

This proposal establishes a Sustainability Certificate Program as a part of Loras College’s general education curriculum. The Sustainability General Education Track will consist of four courses, each containing significant interdisciplinary content and connections to the humanities. Successful completion of the Track will ensure that students meet Loras College’s general education requirements while also obtaining a certificate in Sustainability. The college’s strength and experience in community-based learning will provide ample opportunities for faculty to arrange high-impact learning experiences, and each course has several such activities planned. The project’s outcomes will be disseminated throughout the surrounding community and to other regional and national faculty via both conference presentations and workshops. Evaluation of student progress toward learning outcomes will be based on an existing rubric developed by the grant applicants.
