Project Outcomes

Environment and Resiliency in Italy — Coe College faculty Andrea Kann, Martin St. Clair, and Angela Ziskowski developed an interdisciplinary module shared by three courses when they participated in the 2013 SAIL seminar in Italy.

Faculty and staff at ACM colleges have designed and led a remarkable range of collaborative projects with the support of ACM grant-funded programs.

Through workshops and conferences, research groups, and seminars, their collective efforts have created a wealth of curricular materials, assessment tools, and best practices. The results of these projects are a valuable resource for the ACM colleges — and the higher education community in general — as well as a springboard for further collaboration among faculty.
