The Au Sable Institute is seeking course proposals from interested faculty and professionals to develop and teach a 4-credit course in their area of expertise for the Institute. We will accept course proposals for new courses that support Au Sable’s mission and complements or extends the current course offerings at our campuses, now to include Chicago. Proposals for courses at the Great Lakes campus appropriate to its setting in northern Michigan as well as proposals for courses in Chicago that utilize the urban setting are especially desired. Possible examples of urban topics in Chicago may include, but are not limited to, urban forestry, urban ecology, urban water ecology, urban development, urban environmental justice, the built environment, urban air quality, or urban climate change.

Specifically, we currently are accepting proposals for courses to be taught at:

Au Sable - Great Lakes (Mancelona, MI)

  • May Session (May 18-June 5, 2020) – 1 new course anticipated

  • Summer Session I (June 8-July 10, 2020) or Summer Session II (July 13- August 14, 2020) – 1 new course anticipated

Au Sable - Chicago

  • May Session (May 18-June 5, 2020) – 1 or 2 new courses anticipated

May Session courses are taught five days per week for three weeks. Summer Session courses are taught three days per week for five weeks. Included in the teaching responsibility is the leading of an Integrative Session one day each week, a day in which faculty and students from all classes join together to focus on the application of Christian principles of creation care to specific environmental issues. The faculty member will also participate in and, on occasion, lead Sunday evening vesper worship services for Au Sable faculty, staff and students as the start to the Au Sable week.
