Welcome back, tigers!
With sustainability being one of FIT’s core missions, faculty and students are invited to participate in a unique opportunity this spring to integrate the message of climate change into their coursework in new, creative, and challenging ways.
Amy Lemmon, professor, English and Communication Studies, and Arthur Kopelman, Distinguished Service Professor, Science and Math, were awarded a Sustainability Grant for their proposal Communicating Climate Change: Collaboration in the Arts and Sciences. As part of their work, they are bringing world-renowned climate change expert James McClintock and celebrated author and creative writing professor Adam Vines to campus this semester. Videos created by McClintock and Vines, along with other teaching resources, will be available to faculty, and a public event will be held on April 18th.
The Sustainability Grant will incorporate a fall exhibition of student work from all participating courses. Resources like videos, suggested books and articles, and online guides are available to all faculty to incorporate in lesson plans.
For more information, access to the resources, and/or help incorporating this material into your coursework, contact Amy Lemmon for more information.
Way to spread the word, FIT!
