Faculty and staff involved with the HERE program are passionate about enhancing students’ experiences. We believe college should be transformational, not just transactional. Although we do not all get to interact with students in the classroom as instructors in the three-course sequence, we all enjoy participating in field trips and project work.  As part of our own development as professionals, HERE faculty have presented our work with the program at national conferences, including the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE), the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE), Engineering Education for Sustainable Development (EESD), and the American Society of Civil Engineers – Environment and Water Resources Institute (ASCE-EWRI).
