Greening the College Curriculum provides the tools college and university faculty need to meet personal and institutional goals for integrating environmental issues into the curriculum. Leading educators from a wide range of fields, including anthropology, biology, economics, geography, history, literature, journalism, philosophy, political science, and religion, describe their experience introducing environmental issues into their teaching.

The book provides:

  • a rationale for including material on the environment in the teaching of the basic concepts of each discipline

  • guidelines for constructing a unit or a full course at the introductory level that makes use of environmental subjects

  • sample plans for upper-level courses

  • a compendium of annotated resources, both print and nonprint

Contributors to the volume include David Orr, David G. Campbell, Lisa Naughton, Emily Young, John Opie, Holmes Rolston III, Michael E. Kraft, Steven Rockefeller, and others.
