WPI Courses by SDG

In 2020, an IQP team of WPI students (Emily Baker, Rui Huang, and Akash Shaji), advised by Professors Thomas Balistrieri and Sarah Wodin-Schwartz, created a pilot searchable database of WPI courses by SDG and department. 

The pilot site explains:

"Our project aims to promote sustainability in education for WPI faculty and students. We interviewed faculty who already teach sustainability themed curriculum and surveyed their students to find out what sustainability topics are currently being covered at WPI and what topics students want to learn about. We used this information to generate our deliverable: a website that serves both students and faculty. It allows for students to filter through sustainable courses by subject or sustainability topic. It allows faculty to have easy access to ways sustainability can be integrated in curriculum, potential help for doing so, and the student interest in sustainability topics and delivery methods."

The students' IQP, Sustainable Studies: Mapping Sustainability in WPI Curricula, is available through WPI's open digital archive, Digital WPI.

The Office of Sustainability and the Information Technology team at WPI are working to keep this directory up to date in the coming years.

In addition, WPI submits sustainability course data to be evaluated by the AASHE Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating Survey (STARS), which is used each year by the Princeton Review Green Colleges survey and Sierra Club Cool Schools survey. A listing of sustainability-focused and sustainability-related courses can be found at this Google Drive link on the Office of Sustainability website.
