Along with improving university operations, we are committed to changing the ways in which teaching and learning occurs on campus. We believe it is our responsibility to train future citizens and professions to be more conscious of our environmental footprint and to have the skills to minimize it. We are expanding the opportunities for students to learn about sustainability through degree programs and enhancements of existing courses to be better meet the growing demand for "green" professionals. To further these goals, we have become members of Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and established the Sustainability Working Group to increase the role that sustainability plays within our curriculum.
