2011 National Wildlife Federation Campus Sustainability Case Studies are Online Now!

Published on Posted in Center for Green Schools

Want to find out what campuses nationwide are doing to green their operations and curriculum? Then take a look at National Wildlife Federation’s campus sustainability case study database, which is now available online.

Close to 100 new case studies were added for 2011, highlighting efforts to dramatically reduce pollution, waste and costs, including recycling, energy efficiency improvements, alternative transportation systems and green jobs training programs.

In addition to the 2011 submissions, the database includes more than 650 case studies from campuses across the U.S. spanning more than a decade.

Published each year since 1989, NWF’s Campus Ecology sustainability case study database has become an indispensable resource for students, faculty, administrators, community leaders and others interested in the role of colleges and universities in protecting the public health and welfare by reducing waste, pollution and congestion in their communities. The database is searchable by topic, year and school, and includes information on each college’s project goals, successes, challenges, funding strategies and project leaders.

Trends from the 2011 case studies include:

  • Habitat restoration and conservation, how students and staff are protecting space for wildlife at 3 U.S. campuses
  • 3 Campuses make greener transportation a priority – Appalachian State, U of Chicago, and U Mass Amherst
  • Growing On Campus: 4 Sustainable Gardens at American Colleges & Universities

NWF’s Campus Ecology program works with several hundred campuses nationwide each year on efforts to advance student leadership, reduce carbon pollution and support career education.
