Sustainability
Courses in Sustainability: Yes
Sustainability course is: Required
Description: Sustainability and green projects are addressed in several required business core and electives courses.
Research Opportunities in Sustainability: Yes
Description: Graduate students work with faculty, univesity, non-profit organizations and the local community on various research projects, including sustainability research and/or green projects. Howard University also completed a rain garden funded by a $10,000 grant from the national Home Depot Retool Your School competition. The first installation was completed during the Earth Day festivities in fall 2010 and is located behind the Blackburn Center, in an area that collects a substantial amount of rainwater runoff. Four large perforated 10-gallon water collection containers were installed underground within the area of the garden in addition to the gravel sub-bed. This allows increased water collection capacity and minimizes flooding of the garden during heavy rainstorms. The water collected will also enhance the growth of the native plants in the garden. New solar lighting and benches constructed of recycled material will soon be installed to complete this truly “green” project. Once again, Howard University is participating in RecycleMania, an annual competition of more than 600 universities and colleges that promotes recycling and waste reduction activities on America’s campuses. This year’s competition started on Jan. 23, 2011 and will end on April 2, 2011. During the 10 weeks of the competition, registered schools will collect and report data on all recycling solid waste disposal activities. Now is the time to show the nation that Howard’s recycling program can and will be among the top programs in the country. The University’s success depends on the involvement and support of the entire community. For further information, contact the Office of Capital Planning and Sustainability by e-mailing Alfonzye Chisholm (achisholm@howard.edu) or Carla Annang (cannang@howard.edu) or by calling 202-806-2399.
