Call for Proposals: Creating an Integrated Environment & Sustainability Curriculum

$500,000 is available for undergraduate curriculum activities in environment and sustainability. MIT faculty are encouraged to apply for funds to create new classes, adapt existing classes, and generate innovative teaching and learning opportunities in environment and sustainability.

Proposals must be submitted online at: https://fs27.formsite.com/MIT-ESI/EducationProposal/index.html.

Curriculum Grant Proposal Deadline Extended: proposals are now due March 25 by 5pm.  Due to the recent approval of the minor, we are extending the deadline by one week in order to give faculty additional time to apply.

Proposals should articulate how the chosen topic relates to the four “pillars” that comprise the proposed undergraduate minor in environment and sustainability:  I.  Earth Systems and Climate Science; II. Environmental Governance; III. Environmental Histories and Cultures; and IV. Engineering for Sustainability (more detail available here).
