Proposals will be evaluated based on the guiding principles of EnviroLab Asia, summarized below:• Create a space for the production of new knowledge about the interaction between nature, the built environment, and human populations in Asia• Utilize cross-disciplinary approaches• Encourage 5C exchanges between and across campuses, utilize the current resources at the Claremont Colleges, and/or encourage community-building between and among 5C campus communities• Increase faculty and students’ capacities to effectively influence debates on environmental issues as well as present innovative solutions to challenges resulting from environmental problems
We plan to develop a community of students and scholars interested in this area of research by asking faculty awardees to: • To meet other awardees to exchange information and share stories on how to teaching environmental issues in Asia and give an informal presentation on their course.• Encourage your students to participate in EnviroLab Asia events and activities
We ask those who receive course development or redevelopment awards to provide a copy of the course syllabus, and participate in assessment activities related to the class (surveys, administering surveys with students, participation in discussions) that will be used to evaluate the program and create reports to the Foundation. Stipends will be released after the course has been taught for the first time.
