ENVS 399 - Sustainability Practicum

(1.0 unit)

As the concept of sustainability grows in importance, so does the need for tangible, applied efforts to realize sustainability as a daily practice for individuals and organizations (businesses, governments, universities, etc.). ENVS 399: Sustainability Practicum puts sustainability principles into practice on the OWU campus and in Delaware, Ohio. The course consists of selected readings on sustainability, building on coursework in ENVS 100 1   and/or BOMI 233  , and group efforts and collaborations (with campus organizations, regional organizations, OWU’s Buildings & Grounds, OWU’s food service, Residential Life and other individuals and groups) to realize the goals of our campus sustainability plan. Students in the course work with our campus Sustainability Task Force to evaluate and modify our campus sustainability plan as needed. Prerequisite: ENVS 100 1   or BOMI 233  , junior/senior status, or instructor consent.
