About this title

Synopsis:

This concluding volume in the series presents the work of faculty who have been moved to make sustainability the focus of their work, and to use service learning as one method of teaching sustainability to their students.

The chapters in the opening section of this book – Environmental Awareness – offer models for opening students to the awareness of the ecological aspects of sustainability, and of the interdependence of the ecosystem with human and with institutional decisions and behavior; and illustrate how they, in turn, can share that awareness with the community.

The second section – Increasing Civic Engagement – explores means for fostering commitment to community service and experiencing the capacity to effect change.

The concluding section – Sustainability Concepts in Business and Economics – addresses sustainability within the business context, with emphasis on the “triple bottom line”―the achievement of profitability through responsible environmental practice and respect for all stakeholders in the enterprise.

About the Author:

Robert A. Corrigan is President, San Francisco State University.

Gerald S. Eisman is the Acting Director of the Institute for Civic and Community Engagement at San Francisco State University.
