The environment has become headline news on a regular basis and, in response, going green has become mainstream. Universities have an important responsibility in this context, needing to green both their curriculum and their campus operations. This article describes a course that addresses both these needs at the same time, by providing students with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience working on environmental issues and also providing campus operations personnel with information they need to make the campus more sustainable.
