Eight professors named Sustainability Faculty Scholars

These faculty scholars will be provided with relevant sustainability resources and pedagogies through a variety of unique opportunities such as speakers, workshops, field trips, and article or book discussions.

Eight faculty members from seven academic departments have been selected as the newest cohort of Sustainability Faculty Scholars.

Members of an earlier cohort of the Sustainability Faculty Scholars program tour Elon's Loy Farm. 
The new scholars are:

  • Jonathan Albright, Communications
  • Jason Aryeh, Performing Arts
  • Patrick Bell, Management & Entrepreneurship
  • James Beuerle, Mathematics & Statistics
  • Ben Hannam, Communications
  • Chris Harris, Finance
  • Fred Johnson, Music
  • Alfred Simkin, Biology

Faculty applied to the program because of their interest in incorporating or enhancing a focus on sustainable principles and practices in their courses. Scholars will be provided with relevant sustainability resources and pedagogies through a variety of unique opportunities such as speakers, workshops, field trips, and article or book discussions.

Applicants were selected based on his or her interest in learning about sustainability and infusing it in the classroom. Selection was also based on a diverse representation of disciplines from across the university. A benefit of the program is that it allows faculty to connect with others outside their department and understand sustainability from different perspectives. 

The Sustainability Faculty Scholars Program was developed in 2008 by faculty from the Department of Environmental Studies, the Department of Human Service Studies, and the Center for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning. 

The program is facilitated by Michele Kleckner, the Sustainability Faculty Fellow and senior lecturer in computing sciences, with assistance from the Center for Environmental Studies and the Office of Sustainability.
