The Creative Sustainability Initiative (CSI) Award is intended to:
• increase the awareness of sustainability in the campus community;
• foster a positive and productive conversation about sustainability and the arts at UNCG and beyond; and
• incorporate the creative process into efforts to confront sustainability challenges (such as sustainability education, waste reduction, energy efficiency, water conservation, climate change, etc.).
Students submit proposals for awards of $500. The projects are in the following categories:
• Visual arts: sculpture, art, multi-media, broadcast, etc.
• Performing arts: music, dance, theater, etc.
• Textual arts: languages, creative writing, fiction, poetry, etc.
• Applied arts: design, interior architecture, etc.
As per the "UNIVERSITY-WIDE EVALUATION GUIDELINES FOR PROMOTIONS AND TENURE," UNCG states that "The evaluation of research and creative activities shall consider contributions to the field or discipline, including interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and collaborative work, the quality of the work, and its significance or impact" (p. 7). Further, "Professional, interdisciplinary, and community-related service will be given consideration as part of promotion and tenure review based on their importance to the discipline or profession and the mission of the University." Further, individual departments may provide more specific valuation of interdisciplinarity.
(In addition, the Provost's Office provides a document to guide the administration of, including tenure and promotion of faculty within, interdisciplinary programs; the website URL is in the notes field for this credit.)
