Green Teaching

The Green Teaching Program, run by CTRL in partnership with the student environmental organization Eco-Sense, certifies faculty who teach sustainably. Faculty members can qualify by answering a number of questions about their efforts to make their courses more sustainable.

Upon evaluation, qualified courses will be rewarded with a logo representing on of five different levels of the Green Teaching certificate, which are displayed on Blackboard course pages and can be put on syllabi, to market courses as green.

500 Professors are Certified Green Teachers
