About

Want to prepare higher education students for 21st century careers in green building and sustainability industries?

Integrating sustainability across the curriculum prepares this generation to be both global citizens and champions in addressing some of the biggest challenges we face. The purpose of these resources is to prepare students for today’s careers in green building and sustainability industries.

The toolkits in this series provides higher education faculty curated access to resources and processes, organized to aid in teaching about and engaging students in the concepts of sustainability including: green building, LEED, and sustainable land design and development. The materials can be adapted and scaled to fit a variety of class topics, degree programs, and student learning levels.

These materials do not provide a prescriptive path or set curriculum, rather we encourage you to select resources that are right for your courses. These can be applied as teaching material, student assignments or as supplemental resources to share with the class. Let us know how you’ve customized use of these resources to meet your course needs. Also, please let us know if there are additional resources that will further support your efforts. We look forward to hearing stories about your green building and sustainability courses.
