Zoom Webinar

This session of the Sustainable Development Goals Webinar Series will feature three panelists who will share how they have integrated the Sustainable Development Goals into their courses or programs. You will hear about a health course with a study abroad component, a Freshman Seminar, and about how a 21-credit program was developed using the SDGs as a framework. 

The webinar is being hosted by the Sustainable Development Goals Initiative.  Comments and discussion will focus on how the SDGs can be integrated into a variety of disciplines and how the SDG framework can be used as a program development tool.
