Assessment of Professional Needs of Faculty in American College and University Environmental Programs.
Corcoran, Peter Blaze; Tchen, Richard
This paper reports on an ongoing process of identifying and meeting the professional needs of faculty in higher education environmental programs in the United States. It includes the self-reported strengths and weaknesses of environmental studies programs and the analysis of them by Kormondy, Corcoran, and Tchen (1997). It contains a descriptive analysis of the Symposium: Academic Planning in College and University Environmental Programs, held on Sanibel Island (1998), incorporating the substance of the three keynote papers and six responding papers. The results of a research survey of the participants at Sanibel are included (1999). An update on recent developments in the "Sanibel planning" process, and prospects for a newly-organized network and coming summit meeting on higher education programs for sustainability and the environment (2000), conclude the paper.
