UAlbany Green Scene - Courses
University at Albany


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

In conjunction with the AASHE STARS assessment, the Office of Environmental Sustainability has defined a Sustainablity-Focused course as one that includes all 3 principles of sustainability: Environment, Social, and Economic. A Sustainability-Related course is one that includes at least 2 of the 3 principles of sustainability.

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.
