UW Oshkosh has a long tradition of faculty colleges to provide opportunities for faculty to teach faculty about sustainability. The Winnebago Project is the name for this two-day training and curriculum development effort.
Faculty is provided stipends upon completion and implementation of their curriculum projects. Since May 2008, classes of 10-12 faculty members participated in workshops about infusing sustainability into curriculums in all four colleges.
