Clark School civil and environmental engineering graduate student and Future Faculty Fellow Natasha Andrade has been selected to participate in The Chesapeake Project.

The Chesapeake Project is an initiative to integrate sustainability across the curriculum of the University of Maryland. Central to the project is a two-day workshop where participants learn about core concepts of environmental, economic, and social sustainability and explore unique ways of integrating sustainability into their existing courses across all academic disciplines.

The workshop begins today, May 24, and finishes tomorrow.

Selection was largely based on the quality of the application, the applicant's interest in integrating sustainability in their curricula, the number of students the applicant teaches each year, and an evaluation of how much the applicant could learn from the workshop.

The Future Faculty Program prepares selected Clark School doctoral students to achieve career-long success in the academic world as teachers and researchers.
