Resources for Sustainability Studies

In addition to its own sustainability studies Google group, George Mason University provides its faculty various opportunities to integrate sustainability into their courses, scholarship and co-curricular activities, such as:

Teaching Resources

  1. Faculty workshops to promote sustainability across the curriculum and related sessions at the Center for Teaching Excellence‘s annual Innovations in Teaching and Learning conference.
  2. The Students as Scholars initiative, provided by OSCAR, assists faculty to enhance their undergraduate courses with scholarship activities, which may include sustainability-focused research.

Scholarship Resources

  1. The Patriot Green Fund in part supports sustainability-related scholarship by students, under a faculty member’s supervision.
  2. Research InfoGuides and Librarian Liaisons for environmental and sustainability studies as well as civil, environmental and infrastructure engineering.

Co-Curricular Resources

  1. A calendar of sustainability-related events across Mason campuses, provided by the Office of Sustainability.
  2. A database of internship and service learning opportunities, customizable by course, at the Center for Leadership and Community Engagement.
