Sustainability

University of Wisconsin—Green Bay (UW—GB) is affectionately dubbed “Eco U.” “Environmental research and applied ecological sciences were the focus of the institution’s educational philosophy at its inception,” and UW—GB’s support of ecological research is both elaborate and wholehearted. Students have access to various programs, courses, student research, and internships in sustainability. UW—GB's Environmental Management Business Institute is committed to education and research regarding local, regional, and global environmental problems. The Capstone Seminar in the Environmental Science and Policy graduate program allows students multiple perspectives to research issues such as carbon calculations, sustainable development, biofuels, and riparian restoration. It should be no shock that “Eco U” has historically strong academic programs in environmental science and environmental policy and planning at both bachelor’s and master’s level—including bachelor’s programs in environmental science and environmental policy and planning and a master’s program in environmental science and policy, as well as an online masters program in sustainable management. UW—GB students have a chance to witness various green construction efforts in their campus community. Mary Ann Cofrin Hall boasts an integrated photovoltaic system; campus design connects buildings with energy-efficient underground tunnels. The Cofrin Memorial Arboretum forms a natural boundary of 290 acres encircling campus and serves to restore and preserve some of Wisconsin’s native ecological communities. Plus, students can do their part in their daily lives; UW—GB has a detailed recycling program and various outlets for alternative transportation.
