Courses

The office provides a database of courses that have a sustainability element which students can browse prior to making their course selections.

Additionally, the Director is available to come to classes or other organizational activities and discuss a variety of sustainability issues. In the past, we have made presentations to: ODK, Hillel, and the National Society of Collegiate Scholars; participated in panel discussions for NYPIRG, the National Teach In on Climate Change and UAlbany’s Go Green Initiative kick off; and spoken in climate change, communication, marketing and philosophy classes as well as the G3 program.
