Required Reading

Julian over at AASHE has rightly pointed to an important article in the most recent Sustainability: The Journal of Record (see his post in the Campus Sustainbility Perspectives blog linked below to the right). The thrust of the article by Daniel Sherman of the University of Puget Sound is that sustainability in higher education will only realize its full, transformative potential if it is focused on sustainability as an integral part of the curriculum. After all, as Sherman puts it, "The primary campus operation is student education." Green Mountain College gets this.

If you're enrolled at, work for, or think about Green Mountain College, read Sherman's article, Sustainability: What's the Big Idea?

. . . it should affirm for you, GMC's leadership role in the field. And it may focus us as we assess our curriculum in support of our Mission and 5-year Strategic Plan.
