Inside the Classroom

Main Content

We can present to your classroom! We have outreach presentations that last from 10 minutes to 60 minutes. In addition, we can adapt our presentations to meet the needs of your class. Sustainability can be integrated into any course. We welcome the opportunity to share our message with your class! We can also take your class on a walking green tour or a virtual green tour.

Let us be your client! We have presented to classes who have put together marketing plans, advertising plans, surveys, and more! In addition, students helped to design the Innovation and Sustainability Hub and have worked on student design projects related to recycling bins on campus. 

Sustainability Office team members are available year round to visit any campus class or department. 

See a "Thank You" note from past participants here.
