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.

Connecting People and Land Through the Legacy of Aldo Leopold

Planning to develop a new interpretation of the Aldo Leopold Shack and Farm, home of a key figure in the 20th-century conservation movement.

The Aldo Leopold Foundation seeks an IAHP planning grant to support the development of a master interpretive plan for the Aldo Leopold Shack and Farm, and nearby Aldo Leopold Legacy Center. The Aldo Leopold Shack and Farm is a very significant place not only in Wisconsin's landscape, but also in America's conservation history. This place was the setting and inspiration for his classic A Sand County Almanac (1949), one of the most beloved and respected books about the environment ever published. We have a broad array of advisors to help us with project implementation. Our ultimate project goal is to interpret Leopold's legacy at the historic Shack and Farm without compromising the rustic nature of the landscape. We aim to complement that visitor experience with interpretation at the green-built Legacy Center, which will encourage people to not only think deeply about Leopold, but also about people, land and the connections between them-- throughout history and into the 21st century.
