BSOS388T: BSOS Sustainability Task Force

Spring 2017, 1-credit course offered Thursdays from 6-7.
The BSOS Sustainability Task Force is a student group offered as a one-credit multidisciplinary course in sustainability and is accepting students for the Spring 2017 semester.  The group focuses on sustainability issues on campus and connects them to local, national, and global scales. In previous semesters, students contributed to weekly blogs, collaborated on group projects, and worked on professional development skills.  The course is geared to meet student needs and interests, thus the specific content and project goals for the Spring 2017 semester will be developed as a group in the first several weeks of class, but will include continued work and construction of a solar-powered charging station on campus, evaluation of the BSOS Sustainability Plan metrics, and development of a new energy-tracking project within BSOS.

The group will meet once per week, Thursdays from 6-7 in Tydings 3100 (this time may change if an alternate time is preferred and suitable for all members).  Students should expect to spend at least one hour per week outside of meeting time to work on and accomplish tasks; they should also expect to communicate with their group members outside of class time to meet their goals successfully.  Please contact Adriane Michaelis (amichael@umd.edu) with any questions.  You can also find more info at: http://bsosundergrad.blogspot.com/p/bsos-sustainability-task-force.html.
