Get Involved

Ways for students to get involved

Ways for faculty to get involved

  • Teach a course - If you would like to nominate a course for inclusion in the program, please send a brief description of the course, including its place in the certificate requirements (e.g. anchor), as well as a current syllabus to scdirector@uga.edu. The Advisory Board will consider additions to the course lists every spring and fall.
  • Participate in the Office of Sustainability's Faculty Development Workshop  or its Faculty Learning Community.
  • Mentor a capstone - All students are required to complete a three-credit-hour project, known as the capstone project. Capstone projects provide an opportunity for students to apply classroom learning to hands-on sustainability challenges. A capstone can take the form of an applied project in the student’s given area of interest (e.g. exhibition, research, community-based programs, public policy development, social entrepreneurship, or an internship). If you are interested in serving as a capstone mentor, please let us know by emailing scdirector@uga.edu.
  • Help spread the word about the certificate within your home department; we can send you posters, bookmarks, or digital banners to run on closed circuit TVs. We’re also available to come and meet with your faculty to give an overview of the certificate and answer any questions.
  • Support our students by attending our orientation held at the beginning of each fall and spring semester.  We would like for as many faculty to participate as possible.
