Green Service-Learning across the Curriculum: Model Courses at an Urban Research University
Pelco, Lynn E.; Wood, Mark D.; Aspaas, Helen Ruth; Crawford, Edward R.
Metropolitan Universities, v21 n1 p88-103 2010
The authors contend that service-learning courses at urban universities can and should play a vital role in the greening of higher education and the promotion of sustainable urban environments. They describe one model outreach program that provides continuing education for middle school teaches and several undergraduate-level courses from disciplines across the humanities and sciences at Virginia Commonwealth University. The authors outline strategies for implementing these green service-learning courses and discuss the value of offering a green curriculum that includes both science and humanities courses.
