Greening Class

Greening the Ivory Tower: Improving Sustainability of Brandeis and Community (AMST 191b) is an Experiential Learning (EL) course taught by Laura Goldin. In this hands-on course, students explore strategies for creating healthy, resilient, environmentally sustainable communities in the face of increasingly daunting environmental challenges.

Students collaborate with university partners, Campus Sustainability Initiative and community organizations and agencies to design and implement sustainability projects creating measurable benefits to the campus and local Waltham environment. The goal:  achieve sustainability success stories and change the face of the campus and local community.

The “Greening” course has been a source and incubator of many environmental improvements at Brandeis over the years, and qualified student projects can gain support from the Brandeis Sustainability Fund (BSF).
