In the national online collegiate news site, Uloop, reporter Elena Novak from Florida State University compiles a list of 16 actions U.S. universities are doing to be more environmentally friendly and sustainable. Among a list made up of buildings, dorms, wind turbines, farms, and vehicles, ASU's School of Sustainability stands out for its unique education offerings.
"There are multiple layers of solutions-orientation at ASU and one of them is through emphasizing and rewarding use-inspired research and another one is through walking the talk and making the university a more sustainable place," says Candice Carr-Kelman, assistant director for the School.
School of Sustainability student Maximilian Peter Christman has learned forward-thinking during his studies.
"I think a common conception is that sustainability is about giving your children and your children’s children the same opportunity that you had," he says.
