Green Leaf courses make sustainability a part of 鶹Ƶ's curriculum

Green isn’t just a school color at 鶹Ƶ. At 鶹Ƶ, “green” is way of life, and sustainability is central to the university’s mission. One of the ways 鶹Ƶ is doing this work is with courses, which are designed to help to raise environmental awareness while providing students with a comprehensive knowledge of their local and global environment.

“By infusing sustainability into the curriculum, we provide our students with the knowledge and skills they need to become eco-citizens who will actively seek ways to reduce their environmental footprints.”
Provost Mark Ginsberg

As a result, collectively, the 鶹Ƶ Nation has kept more than 200 million single-use plastic containers out of landfills and prevented the release of 29,108 metric tons equivalent of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, equal to avoiding the annual emissions from 6,128 cars.
