Project Description
Development of an Interdisciplinary Course on Wicked Problems

This interdisciplinary undergraduate course exploring a range of challenging, multifaceted issues, will be designed and taught by graduate students from all six faculties. The January 2023 pilot version of this course, currently in development, will focus on the wicked problem of Climate Change.

Integrating Sustainability Across the Curiculum

Our graduates need core competencies and discipline-specific knowledge of climate change and sustainability if they are to be global citizens prepared to “thrive in an age of rapid change.” This project is in the process of identifying a flexible framework through which climate and sustainability competencies can be integrated into any program of study, and identify processes and tools to support program administrators, chairs, instructors, and central support units to utilize the framework.
