Many institutions struggle to promote liberal arts education in today's changing world. Hampshire College provides a model for how resource-limited campuses can leverage their sustainability assets to support curricular and community transformation. Hampshire is reinventing itself for a sustainable future, using its environmental assets (a campus farm and living building) to support a new transdisciplinary curriculum and student experience. This session will help you leverage environmental assets in applied transdisciplinary learning to prepare students for a sustainable future.

Learning Outcomes:

  1. Identify campus environmental assets that lend themselves for use in transdisciplinary learning and community building.
  2. Describe how environmental assets can support sustainable curricular and student experience transformation.
  3. Outline strategies to engage students, faculty, and staff in institutional transformation.
  4. Advocate for sustainable infrastructure as a teaching tool and community-building asset.
