We Are Proud to Host "The Mississippi Project Workshop VIII"


The Mississippi Project Workshop VIII:

The Value of the Humanities in Teaching and Learning about Sustainability:

Teaching Sustainability Through the Humanities

Are you interested in exploring how you can incorporate sustainability into your curriculum? Are you curious as to how the humanities can add value to your curriculum – even if you’re not in the humanities yourself? Join us for an interactive experience where we’ll explore just that, as well as sustainability learning outcomes, strategies for infusing sustainability into the curriculum, and assignments that promote systems thinking and a sustainability mindset. Participants will also have opportunities to extend research and teaching horizons across disciplines and create new networks with fellow colleagues from SIUE and the region. To register, please email Connie Frey Spurlock.

9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Wednesday, Aug. 15
SIUE Center for Spirituality and Sustainability (The Fuller Dome)

The workshop is free to educators in the region, and will be co-facilitated by Connie Frey Spurlock and Lisa Martino-Taylor. Register at
