Sustainability Education

Mission

Encourage the attitudes, choices and habits that support sustainability at the institutional and personal level in the Georgia College community and connect civic responsibility to learning experiences, both inside and outside the classroom through community services, education and outreach.

Goals

Public Education

  • Create VISIBLE Signs of Green Initiative on Campus
  • Increase awareness of all programs relevant to sustainability that exist on campus
  • Encouraging habits that promote sustainability
  • Encourage incentives, awards that promote sustainability

Curricular

  • Create a network of faculty whose courses promote sustainability
  • Increase curricular components by supporting faculty
  • Assessment of sustainability components

Georgia College offers an inventory of over twenty Sustainability Courses for our undergraduates.  We have recently created a Certificate in Sustainability, which will serve all four colleges, to help our undergraduates learn to implement sustainable practices in their major degrees.

Please see our Tips for Faculty and our List of Suggestions for incorporating sustainability into your teaching. We also have Tips for Students. Please follow and share these ideas.

Do you live in a Residence Hall?  Please contact your CA and invite us out for an informational meeting on your floor– we can help everyone learn more about Sustainability at Georgia College!
