Prof. Deetz receives first ‘Sustainability Teaching Development Grant’

UW-Green Bay’s Sustainability Committee is pleased to announce the first recipient of the new Sustainability Teaching Development Grant, which provides monetary support for professional development activities or projects that lead to the infusion of sustainability into any aspect of teaching. Professor Kristy Deetz (Art and Design) has received this grant for her project titled, “Visiting University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, to talk with professors and observe studio and teaching activities in the Art and Ecology Program.” Using what she will learn at UNM, Deetz plans to offer her students a rich experience integrated with sustainability concepts and practices. She is interested in developing an art and ecology class that combines studio experiences with art history and sciences — it could be offered as a general education class or first-year seminar and also serve as a requirement for the emphasis.
