UD's Greening of the Curriculum


Here is a link to a great article recognizing a few of the University of Dayton's environmental initiatives, the Rivers Institute and the SEE (Sustainability, Energy & Environment) initiative/minor. Sarah Peterson, a junior River Steward and intern for the Rivers Institute, is highlighted in the article as a Sociology major who recently picked up the new SEE minor this semester. Sarah's work with the Rivers Institute has primarily been assisting with the River Leadership Curriculum development, a three course sequence focused on learning about our rivers through an interdisciplinary lens and developing the necessary leadership skills related to these topics. Recently Sarah presented with the Rivers Institute, in Washington DC at the AAC&U annual meeting, and again last week at SOCHE's "Greening of the Curriculum" conference. A big thanks to Sarah for taking the time to share her experiences as a River Steward, with leaders of other colleges & universities.
