Sustainable Education

Vision: CSB will work to develop an education initiative, including faculty, staff, students, and the community that systematically builds understanding of sustainability and implementation of sustainable processes; a curriculum that broadly infuses sustainability across disciplines so that CSB graduates have a basic knowledge of the important role sustainability plays in their chosen profession.


  1. Provide annual sustainability-related professional development opportunities for staff beginning in 2012.
  2. Faculty development opportunities in sustainability will be offered annually. 
  3. Institutionalize the "Blue Stem Project," modeled on the Pondersoa and Piedmont Projects for faculty training in the inclusion of sustainability in course curricula. 
  4. Students will have the option to achieve a sustainability certification as part of their academic experience by the 2015-2016 academic year. 
  5. 20% of professors are offering sustainability related content in their courses by the 2015-2016 academic year.
