Duke faculty, staff, and students who have attended any of our Workshops on Sustainability Across the Curriculum become Trillium Sustainability Fellows. We have also been privileged to welcome participants from other North Carolina institutions of higher education (2010, 2013, 2015) and K-12 institutions (2011).

External Participants

In our workshops we aim to include other institutions who wish to better incorporate sustainability into their curricula. In 2010, we worked collaboratively with 6 other NC institutions of higher education all hoping to begin this type of initiative. In 2011, we benefited from two K-12 institutions: the Carolina Friends School in Durham, NC; and the Charles County, Maryland Public Schools system. In 2013 and 2015, faculty and staff from other local institutions of higher education joined our Duke fellows. The list below acknowledges participation from these institutions.
