Abstract:

This panel presentation will address the role of higher education in sustainability and green economy education. In 2010, in partnership with 14 Illinois community colleges, the Illinois Green Economy Network (IGEN) developed and implemented the Green Your Curriculum (GYC) program to provide a strategic pathway for faculty to integrate sustainability and green economy education into new and existing courses in all disciplines. This faculty development program educates on core sustainability concepts while also educating about career pathways, job skill clusters, employment opportunities and challenges. The GYC program aims to provide every student in the Illinois Community College system with access to a variety of courses which contain sustainability and green economy content within five years. We provide students with opportunities to translate implications, opportunities and risks associated with their broader sustainability education into their local and daily choices as consumers, community members, employees and productive members of an emerging green economy. The program leverages executive level encouragement, peer to peer engagement, targeted training, and shared online resources allowing faculty to integrate sustainability and green economy related content into their courses. All faculty share their resulting sustainability and green economy content, activities, and lessons learned with the Network. The GYC program is designed to end its dependency on external funding through integration into ongoing faculty professional development pathways in each college. This model lends itself well to replication and rapid dissemination among a diversity of higher education institutions.
