The University of Texas Rio Grande Valley (UTRGV) works in partnership with the Association for Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) to host an intensive two-day faculty development program entitled the International Center for Sustainability Across the Curriculum (ICSAC) Conference. Growing out of our university‚Äôs successful Project Sin Fronteras, the program has a common goal that brings together faculty from all fields, allowing for an exchange of ideas in an enriching collaborative atmosphere. This interdisciplinary experience helps faculty to incorporate sustainability concepts, problems, or solutions into new or existing courses. Experienced faculty and presenters share knowledge on issues of sustainability, environment, and curriculum to support the education for sustainable development in higher education. 

Participants will:

  • Discover new ways of relating theoretical course content to the real world 

  • Develop new learning outcomes that breach disciplines

  • Learn to apply a variety of learning approaches

  • Modify a course to engage learners in deep inquiry through applied learning

  • Align personal values with learning outcomes, learning styles, and sustainable development goals

  • Share insights with peers across disciplines and forge opportunities for collaboration 

The conference is made possible through the generous support of the Office of the Executive Vice President for Finance and Administration, the Office for Global Engagement, and the Office of the Provost- Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs.
