Academic Committee (SCurrE)

 

We are seeking your help to identify courses that feature sustainability so that we can make students aware of these offerings. This will also help LSU as it applies for recognition by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, or AASHE, which would enhance recruiting efforts by making the universityʼs “green” status more accessible to potential students.

 

 

Help us complete the Sustainability Course Inventory
