Illinois Offers New Grand Challenge Learning Sustainability Course
In Fall 2016, the Grand Challenge Learning Program will offer a new 200-level Frameworks for Sustainability course, GCL 210, which will meet two General Education requirements.
According to iSEE Associate Director Madhu Khanna, students in the new Sustainability, Energy, and Environment Fellows Program (SEE FP) may petition to take GCL 210 as a substitute for the Introduction to Sustainability requirement. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to start that process.
The course, which is open to all undergraduates and has no prerequisites, will feature several professors on campus who care passionately about sustainability, including iSEE Associate Director and Chemistry Professor Ben McCall, Trevor Birkenholtz in Geography, Lisa Lucero in Anthropology, Ming Kuo in Natural Resources & Environmental Sciences, Melissa Orlie in Political Science, “Siva” Sivapalan in Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Madhu Viswanathan in Business.
