Office of Sustainability
In collaboration with the Graduate School and the Office of Undergraduate Research, the Office of Sustainability administers the Sustainability Teaching Grants Program. This course development program is a competitive funding initiative that provides USF instructors with financial and research support to design and implement new research-based courses dealing with issues in social, economic, and environmental sustainability. Since sustainability can only be achieved through communities of educated citizen scientists and activists, courses that include a service-learning component are given preference.
Dr. Christian Wells, Director of the Office of Sustainability, administers the program and was formally trained through AASHE's Sustainability Across the Curriculum Leadership workshops for faculty leaders.
Each year, up to four successful proposals are funded up to $1500 each and faculty will receive individual consultation for course development.
The Diversity and Equal Opportunity Office (DEO) provides effective leadership to ensure that diversity and equal opportunity are a thriving part of the fabric of the University of South Florida. All members of the USF campus are invited to attend awareness and training programs as well as numerous events throughout the year hosted by the office.
The DEO office is supported by 9 full-time, qualified staff members trained by the university.
USF provides a salary to DEO office staff members, training, and a budget that allows the office to host the awareness and training program along with other events on campus open to all faculty, staff, and students.
