Faculty Opportunities

Campus As A Living Lab (CALL Grants)

The 'Campus as a Living Lab' Grant Program is a unique opportunity to partner faculty and facilities management staff in using the campus as a forum for the exploration of sustainability concepts and theories. The program aligns the California State University's long-standing commitment to sustainability with the fundamental goal of preparing students for the workforce.

The 'Campus as a Living Lab' Grant Program will provide funds for the redesign of a course that ties elements of sustainability into opportunities for learning using the campus physical plant. Funds of up to $12,000 will be awarded to support the preparation of the proposed course.Course redesigns should align with the goals of the CSU Sustainability Policy.

Students in every discipline can benefit from courses that introduce theories and concepts in sustainability and environmental responsibility, including but not limited to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) disciplines. Course redesigns that incorporate at least one high-impact practice such as for-credit internships, service-learning courses, undergraduate research opportunities, student learning communities, and first year or capstone programs, are strongly encouraged.

For additional information regarding the Campus as a Living Lab Grant Program, please contact Ms. Meaghan C. Smith, Principal University Planner and Project Manager at (562) 951-4102 or
