Promoting Sustainability at ACG
Environmental Studies students have the opportunity to engage in projects related to campus operations and services that are transforming ACG into a “green” campus. This objective is accomplished in collaboration with the Center of Excellence for Sustainability (CES), a center established in 2011 in order to make ACG a sustainable learning community and to coordinate sustainability initiatives on campus. Such projects involve environmental audits and environmental management, sustainable use of resources, policy for sustainable practices, campus ecosystem and biodiversity.
