Abstract

Social responsibility, sustainability, and ethics are topics that have prominently emerged in courses within textiles and apparel curriculums over the past ten years in direct response to industry best practices. As the importance of these topics and practices, a triple bottom line approach, are recognized, there remains a challenge of how to weave this content holistically within an academic curriculum and transfer this learning to student’s real life implications. This interactive session will explore successful approaches for this integration presented by members of Educators for Socially Responsible Apparel Practice (ESRAP).
