Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions
Spring 2019 InterAmerican Campus Faculty Learning Community and Symposium  
April 8 - 12

The Spring 2019 InterAmerican Campus Faculty Learning Community will focus on United Nations Sustainable Development Goal #16: Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions. This goal seeks to promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, provide access to justice for all and build effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels. Participating faculty will include topics of sustainability into their curricula, including an emphasis on balancing social equity, just economy, cultural preservation, and environmental considerations.  Our efforts will culminate in a campus-wide symposium April 8 12 (schedule TBA). The InterAmerican Faculty Learning Community is part of the college-wide Global Sustainability and Earth Literacy Studies (GSELS) learning network and as such addresses various issues related to Earth Literacy, sustainable development, and social justice.
