All Wake Forest faculty are invited to enhance their teaching and engagement with sustainability issues by participating in the Magnolias Project May 15-16, 2019 on the Wake Forest campus. No prior experience with sustainability-related issues in the classroom or in research is necessary, and faculty at all ranks and career stages are welcome. 

The workshop will explore how we can meaningfully integrate sustainability—broadly defined—into our classrooms.  Although we start by taking a close look at Wake Forest University and the larger Piedmont region, we invite participants to engage in local-to-global comparisons.  The Magnolia Project kicks off with a two-day workshop (May 15-16) that will offer opportunities to extend research and teaching horizons across disciplines and create new networks with fellow colleagues. Following the workshop, faculty participants prepare discipline-specific course materials on their own over the summer. Participants receive a stipend of $500 upon completion of a new or revised syllabus.  

Interested? Applications will be accepted until April 24th.  

Send a short (one-paragraph maximum) description of how you imagine you might change an existing course, or develop a new one, that will incorporate environmental and/or sustainability issues to Kim Couch couchkm@wfu.edu.  Please include your name, departmental affiliation, phone number and e-mail address.
