How It Works

Fellows meet up to share teaching and learning ideas, explore different teaching practices, learn from experts, and collaborate on projects, with support from UBC’s Sustainability Initiative.

Sustainability Fellowship Outcomes

Previous Sustainability Fellows have developed the UBC framework for sustainability education, authored white papers, and piloted an introductory sustainability course.

Current Sustainability Fellows

Our 2020-2021 cohort consists of 12 faculty members from 7 disciplines who are working in interdisciplinary pairs on 6 different curriculum projects.


Since 2010, UBC’s Sustainability Initiative has supported 42 Sustainability Fellows from 7 Faculties and 25 departments, many over multiple years.
