Become a Climate and Sustainability Teaching Fellow for 2024-25

Deadline: January 29, 2024

In support of the Duke Climate Commitment’s educational mission, the Climate and Sustainability Teaching (CAST) Fellows Program is returning for a second year.

Building on the work of the 2010-2019 Duke Trillium Sustainability Fellows Program, the CAST Fellowship provides support and a peer learning community dedicated to increasing the prevalence and quality of climate and sustainability concepts in academic courses across all departments.

Eligible CAST fellows will be awarded $5,000 to their Duke faculty discretionary account and receive resources, support and guidance from pedagogy experts and experienced faculty to incorporate climate and sustainability into their course curricula. The fellowship provides the opportunity to collaborate on course redesign with a cohort of peers from across campus.

The inaugural 2023-24 CAST fellows’ cohort consisted of 12 faculty members from seven of Duke’s ten schools. Faculty and instructors of any level and rank, as well as staff with instructional responsibility from any Duke department, are encouraged to apply by Jan. 29, 2024. The redesigned courses will substantially engage with issues of climate and sustainability and will be taught in Fall 2024 or Spring 2025.
