Students use CU as a living laboratory, to examine policy issues on campus and in the broader community. Environmental Center students lead projects, where they learn to analyze sustainability challenges, propose solutions, and work on implementing these solutions. Many of these student projects have led to operational and social change at CU Boulder. Because of this success, our campus is recgonized for being a strong influence for all of higher education sustainability operations and programs.
"Substantive community involvement builds strategic and interpersonal skills, hones core values and builds organizational and communication capabilities — all of which are transferable to and highly valued in the workplace." Hewlett, Luce, West Harvard Business Review 2005.
