Sustainability in the Curriculum
URI is known for its robust curriculum in the natural sciences, environmental and natural resource economics, oceanography, ocean engineering and marine affairs. However, to ensure that students outside of the “traditional” environmental science programs are equally prepared to address sustainability issues via cross-disciplinary or multidisciplinary collaboration across the curriculum is a significant challenge.
Many programs have been developed to help infuse sustainability topics into the curriculum.
The Outreach Center at the University of Rhode Island is offering three training programs in the coming weeks for residents interested in learning about energy conservation and efficiency, how to design and install a residential rain garden, and how to manage invasive plants.
