Rise Up: How Faculty Can Respond to the Challenges of Our Time

June 9, 2022 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Faculty development workshop on addressing climate change and food insecurity, offered by Maine Campus Compact

With our planet in crisis and communities facing growing challenges, higher education is called to action to take the lead in addressing two of the world’s most pressing social issues: climate change and food insecurity.

In service to the highest ideals of democracy, faculty are well-positioned to help prepare students to address complex global problems. To help prepare faculty for this vital role, we are offering a timely one-week virtual course with three live sessions stemming from Maine Campus Compact’s Campuses for Environmental Stewardship (CES) program. This course will bring together faculty participants to consider ways to implement community-engaged teaching/learning while addressing many critical topics.

One-week virtual course with three live sessions:

Monday, June 6, 2:00–4:00 pm EST
Tuesday, June 7, 2:00–4:00 pm EST
Thursday, June 9, 2:00–4:00 pm EST

Topics covered in sessions:

  • Solving critical social challenges through civic engagement
  • Climate change and food insecurity: Tackling timely and urgent challenges through civic engagement (CE) /community-based learning (CBL) projects
  • Advancing 21st century skill-building for students to address critical social problems
