In this paper we present our rationale for using an active learning constructivist approach to teach sustainability-related topics in a higher education. To push the boundaries of ecological literacy, we also develop a theoretical model for sustainability knowledge co-creation. Drawing on the experiences of faculty at a major Southeastern University in the United States, we present case studies in architecture, engineering, geography, and marketing. Four Sustainability Faculty Fellows describe their discipline-specific case studies, all of which are project-based learning experiences, and include details regarding teaching and assessment. Easily replicated in other educational contexts, these case studies contribute to the advancement of sustainability education.

Located along the eastern boundary of the Caribbean Plate, Dominica is one of the most volcanically active countries in the Caribbean. Its volcanic nature results in a rugged mountainous landscape that is lush and fertile and creates the backdrop for a rich biodiversity of plants and animals. Dominica, with its mountain peaks, subaerial volcanoes, crater lake, coastal dike, and numerous rivers, has been shaped over millions of years by volcanic and hydrological processes, which have built up and worn down the island, respectively. Dominica’s physical geography played a role in helping the native Carib Amerindians resist European colonization, and today contributes to Dominica’s economy by supplying the landscape for the agriculture, fishing, and tourism that takes place on the island. Dominica’s economy and parts of its culture are a reflection of its landscapes and landforms. Conversely, the influence of various cultures and economic activities on Dominica is reflected in impacts on the geomorphic landscape.

Volcanic processes have crafted an undeniably beautiful geological landscape on the island of St. Lucia. The young island is rugged and mountainous with narrow valleys. St. Lucia’s topology reflects its volcanic origin, including the Barre de I’Isle volcanic axial range, the dramatic twin Pitons, the Qualibou Caldera, and Sulphur Springs, one of the hottest and most active geothermal fields in the Lesser Antilles. Many of these outstanding geomorphic features are why the Pitons Management Area in the southwest of St. Lucia was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The second largest of the Windward Islands, St. Lucia, has been home to Amerindian populations, pirates, whalers, runaway slaves, and European colonists. Today, the island’s geomorphic features continue to play an important role in providing the base for agriculture and for attracting tourists from around the world. Both of these activities, while important for the island’s economy, are susceptible to the hazards of hurricanes, floods, and landslides experienced on St. Lucia; and in turn, both these activities and the natural hazards have impacts on the island’s geological landscapes.
