Auraria Sustainable Campus Program logo with sustainability icons.The Auraria Sustainable Campus Program is building a tri-institutional resource page to highlight academic opportunities related to sustainability.

The resource page, which will be housed on the Auraria Higher Education Center website, will serve as a one-stop shop for information about programs, courses, research, professors, internships and projects that contribute to the field of sustainability on campus. The page will help connect students with sustainability programs as well as help all three institutions to promote the great sustainability work taking place on the Auraria Campus.

“With more and more political interest in issues such as climate change, (the list) will be helpful for all institutions to have as a central location for media outlets to identify sustainability scholars and programming on campus,” said Sara Jackson Shumate, Ph.D., lecturer, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences and member of the faculty/staff coalition developing the page. “The webpage is also a way to showcase to alumni and employers how Auraria Campus students are trained in a broad range of innovative and interdisciplinary fields.”

Faculty and staff can contribute to this comprehensive webpage by completing a quick five-question survey about their course, research, internship or sustainability opportunity. Faculty and staff are also encouraged to direct students and academic advisors to the page.
