Undergraduate Research in Service of Sustainability: Toward a National Agenda
New Day and Time: January 15, 2015 | 3:00PM Eastern
The fall 2014 CUR Quarterly highlighted some extraordinary examples of undergraduate research serving the cause of environmental sustainability, often through community action and using the campus as a "living laboratory" of practice. (Please see https://www.cur.org/publications/curquarterly/ to access CUR Quarterly on line). In this webinar, two national experts in the field of sustainability practices, education, and research provide additional examples of how campuses are engaging undergraduates in sustainability-focused projects, and how individual campus-based efforts are linking together to form broad coalitions dedicated to sustainable practices.
Our presenters will include:
Elvyra San Juan, Assistant Vice Chancellor for Capital Planning, Design, and Construction, California State University, Office of the Chancellor Debra Rowe, President, U.S. Partnership for Education for Sustainable Development and Professor at Oakland Community College, Michigan
