Our goal is to disseminate high quality sustainability science education to educators and future teachers, and ignite a fire for the content that transcends all subject topics. We are working to develop and craft educators who are prepared to enter their field ready to inspire change that is born from awareness and comprehension of the key economic, environmental, and social challenges of our time. Simultaneously, we are conducting research on methods and modes of delivery that yield high levels of interest, engagement, and understanding. It is through this iterative process and feedback loop that we embrace new modalities of learning and further solidify a continued excellence of high quality academic education at all levels, to all students. In alignment with the guiding principles set forth by the New American University, our project is trailblazing transdisciplinary interactions, reaching into the fabric of our place, and crafting a platform to inspire and foster change. Our commitment is to continue to improve our practice through the systematic examination of data related to our project. As a result of our efforts, we have published and presented in a variety of scholarly outlets, including those that are open access.

 

Individual and community impact begins with education, and it is fundamental that people understand the important issues facing our society, both locally and globally, through scientific literacy and awareness.
