Academic Workshops: Sustainability in the Curriculum

Once a year, the Office of Sustainability holds a one and a half day workshop for academics interested in incorporating sustainability into their curricula. People from all disciplines are welcome. Those who participate in the workshop end up with a finished curriculum. See below for a collection of past participant's curricula.

The Fall Line Project, named for the position of Auburn at the geographic interface between the hard rock of the uplands and the sandy soils of the coastal plains, is based on the nationally recognized Piedmont Project at Emory University. This year, 2012, the workshop will take place on May 9 and 10 at the Auburn University Louise Kreher Forest Ecology Preserve.

Fall Line, May 9 and 10, 2012
