Faculty Development Worksop

February 27 & 28, 2014

Project Sin Fronteras is a 2 Day Workshop designed to serve as a transformational platform that infuses Sustainability Concepts and Practices into the UTPA & UTB curriculum beginning Spring 2014. This program provides participants with information and skills to produce a new or revised course syllabus. Participants who complete and commit to teaching the workshop syllabus within one academic year of graduation will receive a $500.00 stipend.

Sustainability address three realms of human/nature interaction: the environmental, the social , and the economic. External accrediting bodies are beginning to require the inclusion of sustainability within the curriculum (e.g. Business, Engineering) and recent studies have begun to link sustainability curriculum to attracting disadvantaged students to STEM fields, its role in co-curricular and service learning, and as a means of student engagement.

Watch the START HERE Trailer a documentary that builds on the ideas of the National Strategic Narrative to re-imagine where America's place is in the world and how citizens can affect change by their involvement. The documentary was meant to challenge audiences’ notions of what constitutes “national security,” and inspire people to embrace a new vision for our nation.
