Faculty Development Training!

With our planet in crisis and communities being impacted by growing challenges, higher education is called to action to take the lead in addressing two of the world’s most pressing social issues: Climate Change and Food Insecurity. To help prepare faculty for this vital role, we are offering a timely one-week virtual course with three live sessions stemming from Maine Campus Compact’s Campuses for Environmental Stewardship (CES) program. This course will bring together faculty participants to consider ways to implement community-engaged teaching/learning while addressing many critical topics.

  • Tuesday December 14th from 2:30 – 4:30 PM (EST)
