Join University of Utah faculty in making sustainability teaching more exciting and relevant
Sustainability Teaching Workshop & Program
The Sustainability Teaching Workshop engages educators in a one-day experience on integrating the United Nation's Sustainable Development Goals and fundamental sustainability concepts into curriculum across campus. Upon program completion of the workshop participants will become eligible to apply for a sustainability teaching grant through the Sustainability Teaching Scholars Program.
2024 Sustainability Teaching Workshop dates TBD.
The workshop is a one-day event with a welcome dinner for participants and facilitators the evening before.
Participants who are interested in pursuing the Sustainability Teaching Scholar Designation, please see information below.
Sustainability Teaching Scholars
Sustainability Teaching Scholars are faculty who have experience integrating the sustainable development goals into their curriculum, completed the Sustainability Teaching workshop, and have demonstrated a commitment to furthering sustainability education on campus.
Participants who have completed the workshop are eligible to apply for a small grant or teaching assistant award and enroll in the Sustainability Teaching Scholars program.
2023 Small Grant Applications are due by June 15.

Sustainability Faculty Learning Community
A faculty learning community (FLC) comprises an interdisciplinary group of faculty devoted to enhancing teaching, learning, and the university experience. FLCs have been shown to increase faculty interest in teaching and learning while providing a safe space for faculty to explore and implement new approaches, give and receive feedback, and generate a knowledge base accessible to the broader University community.
The Sustainability FLC is comprised of individuals currently working towards the sustainability teaching scholars designation, previous Wasatch Experience participants, and faculty interested in sustainability education.
Sustainability Faculty Learning Community Events take place two times a semester.
