Finger Lakes Project
May 25

Program Description:
Developing 21st century leaders who understand their roles and responsibilities as global citizens requires a big-picture, "systems" approach to problem-solving, so faculty are responding to the need to infuse considerations of sustainability into courses within their academic discipline. Integrating less familiar knowledge domains within one's disciplinary curricula – teaching "outside the lines" - requires specialized training and support. The Finger Lakes Project workshop provides interested faculty with that specialized sustainability curriculum development support.

Learn more on the Center for Sustainability and the Environment page.

Wells College promises a relevant liberal arts and sciences education. Intellectually challenging. Reinterpreted for today. Classroom teaching combined with hands-on learning. Wells graduates enter the world prepared for successful futures.
