Academic Sustainability Programs invites applications from faculty members in all academic units, to co-teach in our interdisciplinary courses in sustainability during the 2016-17 academic year.
Each of our courses typically is co-taught by a team of 2 or more faculty members from diverse disciplines, with an effort made to pair faculty with technical/scientific expertise, together with those having expertise in the social sciences/liberal arts. These courses are taken by students pursuing the Minor in Sustainability Studies, and they draw also non-minor students from all 9 colleges across campus.
Academic Sustainability Programs will pay $3,000 (plus applicable benefits) per course, to each instructor's department. Budget transfers will be made to the instructor's department, which then can be used by the department to buy out part of the instructor's regular teaching load, or to pay the instructor as additional compensation for teaching an overload. Instructors must obtain permission in advance to co-teach, from their department heads.
To view further information about these courses, and to submit an application, go to this LINK.
The Deadline for submission of applications to co-teach during the academic year 2016-17 is February 1, 2016. However, we encourage early applications; the application process will remain open until all positions are filled.
