[Concurrent Breakout Session #1]: Special Topics Session: Embedding Socially Responsible Practices within and across the Curriculum: Where We Have Been and What's Next - An ESRAP Panel

Social responsibility and sustainable fashion are topics that have prominently emerged as 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 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), formerly ESRAB. Educators for Socially Responsible Apparel Businesses (ESRAB) was founded in 1999 with the emphasis on increasing awareness and impact of the research and teaching of faculty engaged with social responsibility topics. This session will also highlight the accomplishments the group has made since 1999, reflect on where we currently stand, and plan for the next adventures for ESRAP.
