The University of Maine at Farmington (UMF) has undertaken a commitment to establish a culture of environmental sustainability. With two new Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certified buildings on site, a green building curriculum has been developed. This multidimensional curriculum involves university faculty, students, K-12 teachers and students, and regional community members. One focus area of this curriculum is to empower university students to teach sustainability to others through a variety of service-learning projects. (Contains 4 figures.)
