Sustainability in Curriculum Resources
In 2008, Lane was awarded an U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Environmental Education Grant to provide training and resources for instructors for the purpose of providing the instructors with the ability to infuse sustainability concepts into their courses. This page provides the materials and resources that were developed during the implementation of this grant. These resources can be used by instructors interested in learning more about infusing sustainability into their curriculum.
