Auburn faculty, YOU TOO can join our campus-wide directory of faculty who conduct sustainability-related research, and/or our directory of courses that you teach which have some sustainability content.

Benefits include a broader swath of colleagues and potential students being able to find out about your research and teaching expertise and activities on campus, related to the expanding, interdisciplinary field of sustainability.

This fall, Auburn University is updating both directories, as part of our every-3-years participation in the nation-wide Sustainability Tracking and Rating System (STARS). Our campus currently has a coveted silver rating in STARS, through the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), but we are reaching for GOLD this year, and need your help.

To update or correct your research and/or course information in these AU directories, for:

  • Sustainability-related research

    View our current inventory on our website.

Send in a new listing, or update/correct your current listing. Send a brief, one-sentence description of your project(s). Only research projects/topics in which you are currently active, or have been sometime during the past 3 years (2013-2015), may be listed in the updated directory:

  • Courses with sustainability content

View our current directory of courses on campus that are sustainability-focused or related (focused courses have sustainability content infused throughout the course; related courses              contain a section or some material on sustainability). Courses are listed by college and department.

Send in updates of corrections/new courses, etc., for those that you teach, or which are taught in your department/college. Include a brief, one-sentence description of the sustainability-related content in your course. Only courses taught sometime between Spring 2013-Fall 2015 may be included.

Send updates to: Dr. Nanette Chadwick, Director of Academic Sustainability Programs, chadwick@auburn.edu Tel: 844-8184

The new directories will be posted online later this fall. If you wish to receive notices about this posting, and as well as occasional other sustainability-related information for faculty on campus, contact Dr. Chadwick with a request to join our susfac-listserv.
