Students in UVA's 2022 Decarbonization Academy
The University of Virginia Committee on Sustainability (CoS) announces its first round of grants to support Grounds engaged learning related to sustainability at UVA.
Grounds as a Living Lab
Connecting academics and operations is a unique strength of higher education’s ability to lead and innovate sustainability solutions. At UVA, faculty, students, and staff are partnering on experiential projects in several courses to connect global ideas to local implementation. This Grounds as a living lab approach strengthens both curricula as well as engagement and stewardship of our Grounds.
Teaching & Research Sub-committee
The Teaching and Research Sub-committee (T&R) develops pan-University opportunities for interdisciplinary sustainability teaching and research. The sub-committee aligns its work with existing processes for curriculum development and research funding.
Although not always explicit, sustainability intersects with each major at UVA, and we should aim to integrate our typical curriculum choices with sustainability-oriented courses. Sustainability does not only refer to the environment, but also the economy and equity. Every undergraduate student at UVA should be able to relate their major to sustainability, using this resource.
