Sustainability Across the Curriculum

Resources for faculty who want to add sustainability to their curriculum in almost any discipline.

FGCU Sustainability Symbol


The “S” is representative of the words sustainability and stewardship. The “S” is in the shape of the infinity symbol representing unlimited capacity, energy, excellence, or knowledge.

The FGCU emerald green and cobalt blue school colors are symbols of the earth and water, in keeping with the University’s environmental mission.



Welcome to the Sustainability Across the Curriculum Resource Guide! This guide is intended to be a helpful resource to faculty in any discipline who would like to include more material on sustainability in their course. 

Faculty interested in adding or revising course content to include sustainability are encouraged to apply to the annual Integrating Sustainability Across the Curriculum (ISAC) Academy. Following the Piedmont/Ponderosa Project professional development model, the ISAC Academy provides time, space, and resources for faculty at all career stages across the university to engage in inter- and cross-disciplinary discussions for sustainability curriculum development.

The ISAC Academy is supported by the Office of the Provost, the Center for Environmental and Sustainability Education, the Lucas Center for Faculty Development, Environmental Health & Safety, and the Office of University-wide Programs in Undergraduate Studies.

The call for applications will go out via an all Faculty email each year. Please consider joining this learning community by applying to this competitive, cohort-based annual academy.
