Examination of concepts, practices, and opportunities of fashion sustainability (such as social and environmental responsibility) available to designers, developers and consumers. (3 credits).
In an effort to better serve our students, the Department of Retailing would like to add this course as an elective to the current curriculum. The retailing industry is rapidly changing. With today’s economy and the worldwide emphasis on “being green” and sustainable, Retail students need to learn the importance of sustainable fashion and how they can be more responsible managers, merchandisers, buyers, and consumers. Although sustainability is a very current topic, no course is currently offered addressing this issue in a comprehensive manner. Students would be better served by adding the topic of sustainability to the Retailing curriculum.
Please see below.
Is this a distance learning course only? That is how the justification reads.
In the Introductory Assignment section change “Instructions and a grading rubric posted” to “Instructions and a grading rubric are posted”
Written Assignments section – change “in the first” to “in the first assignment”, do the same for the second assignment.
Make sure the learning minutes are not too long for reading and lectures. They kicked mine back for 120+ learning minutes for chapter readings.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We have approved the proposal and are moving it forward to the Faculty Senate. It is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
