Our program has agreed that green chemistry and sustainability in the curriculum is valuable not just from an educational standpoint, but also to help engage our students in changing climate of our field. Our college’s mission is that our students make a consequential impact on society, and one way we can do this is by equipping them with the tools to make rational decisions related to green chemistry and sustainability.

Implement green principles across the curriculum, includes starting an the Environmental track we started, but threaded throughout the program. Long term: Embed Green Principles as a pillar in lectures and labs, and make it direction in our students can look at for careers, critical thinking, social justice, and so on. Short Term: Start with activities that we can build on in each course.
