Integrating campus operations and sustainability pedagogy

University Park, Pa. — The Schreyer Institute for Teaching Excellence will present "Integrating campus operations and sustainability pedagogy: How can faculty contribute?" from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 27, in 315 Rider Building, University Park.

This teaching luncheon is the second in the Schreyer Institute's "Teaching Sustainability across the Curriculum" series, and features a panel discussion with Steve Maruszewski, Office of Physical Plant, Penn State University Park, James Hamilton, assistant professor of arts and humanities at Penn State Mont Alto, and Ronald Swope, director of business at Penn State Mont Alto. Campuses participating by video conference are: Berks, Fayette, Greater Allegheny, Hazleton, Mont Alto, New Kensington, Schuylkill and Worthington Scranton.

This dialogue with both operations staff and faculty will share ideas about how academic/operations partnerships work in terms of university-wide sustainable development programs and initiatives. The discussion will address current and future ways to take advantage of opportunities for faculty and students to partner with operating units in order to link the university's academic mission with facets of campus operations, and to think about how can we use our campuses as living laboratories for teaching students about the pedagogy of environmental sustainability.
