On these pages, you can get familiar with course deliverables that address a clearly defined challenge to a community posed by climate change. Students depended upon and executed a community engagement process from definition of the challenge to the deliverables, including co-creation of the curriculum.

Whenever possible, faculty encouraged a cross-disciplinary platform, including hosting extra-curricular activities that created space for the exchange of information between the Institute and our community partners. The work created a platform for students to actively shape their learning environment, mimicking and preparing them for real-world situations.
