Sustainability and General Education at WCU.pdf 

Background:  West Chester University recently completed a Climate Action Plan (CAP), which includes a commitment to make sustainability and climate change part of the curriculum and educational experience of all WCU students.  For guidance in this effort we have turned to our colleagues at Dickinson where they are making sustainability a defining characteristic of a Dickinson Education.  Whether or not your institution is a signatory to the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment, please join us as we consider how we can educate all students to be active participants in addressing climate change and creating a sustainable society.
