Students use CU as a living laboratory to examine social, political, and environmental issues both on campus and in the broader community. Environmental Center students lead projects through which they learn to analyze sustainability challenges, propose creative solutions, and effectively implement these solutions. Many of these student projects have led to social and operational change at the University of Colorado Boulder.

 

If you would like to start by simply learning more about sustainability on campus and the city of Boulder, sign up for our Environmental Center newsletters.  The Involvement and Events Newsletter, which is published once a week, is an extensive collection of upcoming Environmental Center, campus, and broader community opportunities, scholarships, internships, and information to develop you personally and professionally.   Sign up here!
