Sustainability Projects in the Classroom


The purpose of this Community of Practice is to help Harper College meets its commitment to creating a carbon neutral campus under the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment (ACUPCC). This group of faculty and staff (first brought together in the Harper Leadership Institute, Project CAPtivate) is working to infuse sustainability projects into classes so students can help us figure out how to address some of the thornier issues around attaining carbon neutrality. We will not attain carbon neutrality without the input of all faculty, administration, staff and students.
