CES Grant Program
CCNH has partnered with Maine Campus Compact and Southern New England Campus Compact for the 2018 Campuses for Environmental Stewardship (CES) program. This program will train college faculty from 16 baccalaureate degree granting colleges and universities in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Rhode Island to develop and deliver courses which partner with community organizations to address pressing issues such as environmental stewardship and STEM education.
Through this three-year initiative, over 60 faculty members working in multi-disciplinary teams from 16 campuses across 5 New England states will embed community-engaged environmental education into a course of any discipline. Selected campuses will deliver 3-4 related service-learning courses. Each course will culminate with a student-led community initiative and/or presentation.
Teams will receive training in service-learning pedagogy and apply this interdisciplinary model to create community partnerships and address critical environmental stewardship challenges across 5 New England states.
We are currently accepting applications from interested campuses to join our November cohort. Please see the overview document below and please contact Debby Scire for more information.
