Environmental Literacy in Undergraduate Higher Education: Three Arenas for Involvement.
Bousquet, Woodward S.
With environmental awareness on the rise in the late 1980's and increasing into the 1990's, higher education is presented with a number of opportunities for environmental education. This paper addresses three ways in which institutions of higher education in Appalachia and elsewhere can respond to the continuing need and present calls for environmental literacy. Presented is some background on programs at Warren Wilson College, North Carolina, and suggestions for involvement of institutions of higher education in environmental education. These suggestions are grouped into three general categories: general education; degree programs; and community outreach. Examples are given to illustrate the breadth of opportunities available that are not confined by discipline, classrooms, or campuses. (CW)
