In this class we will be grappling with ideas around Sustainability and looking at the variety of different frameworks for measuring, tracking, assessing, and rating sustainability using Occidental College as our laboratory.

The class will learn about the sustainability data used for sustainability initiatives like:
the Real Food Challenge, The Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education’s (AASHE) STARS framework, and the Second Nature Internal Carbon Pricing Higher Education Toolkit.

Students in the class will have the opportunity to become a U.S. Green Building Council certified LEED Associate.
