A new team-taught course with a focus on interdisciplinary teaching and integrative learning was offered at the Holland Meijer Campus. Faculty from Engineering and Marketing developed a community-focused course with an alternative schedule to engage students in the question: What will the community look like in ten years? A unique course emerged — Socially Conscious Innovation — that took place in an intense four-week semester. Students spent a significant amount of time in the community exploring local markets for innovation in the realms of sustainability, globalization, and active aging. This article focuses on issues relating to the sustainability segment of the course.
