  • Institute for Sustainable Energy (ISE) at ECSU focuses on matters relating to public policy, conservation and load management, efficient and renewable distributed generation, protection of environmental resources, and the dissemination of useful information on energy alternatives and sustainability to users and providers of energy. The Institute adds an unbiased focus on practical applications and dissemination of information about how to improve the energy profile and sustainability of the region.
  • Brown University's "Brown is Green" (BIG) website is a cooperative effort by all departments, staff, students, and faculty to link student research and education efforts with administrative offices. The goal is to implement programs that reduce the environmental risks of operations. Many good independent study ideas can be taken from BIG.
  • Harvard University's Green Campus Initiative's vision is to establish an integrated commitment throughout Harvard by becoming a "learning organization" and a living laboratory in the pursuit of environmental sustainability. The approach is to engage and involve the Harvard community of faculty, students and administrators, working within Harvard's decentralized structure to enable local management involvement, develop understanding of sustainability, develop networks within and between faculties, and enable the community to Institutionalize sustainable practices.
  • Middlebury College Environmental Affairs is a good website for students looking to green their campus, as it includes current greening projects and programs.
  • Tufts Climate Initiative (TCI) is steering Tufts University towards a cleaner energy path. Tufts University is committed to meeting or beating the Kyoto target for university-related greenhouse gas emissions.
  • UB Green is an umbrella website for the University at Buffalo's environmental standing activities, programs, and the environmental office of University Facilities at the University at Buffalo. They promote campus environmental responsibility. The website is a great template for students looking to green their campus, as it includes current greening projects and programs.
  • University of Colorado Environmental Center is the largest student run environmental center in the country.
  • University of Oregon Environmental Issues Committee website has a massive searchable sustainability database (scroll down)
  • University Of Pennsylvania Environmental Group is a student run group aiming to increase campus awareness of global environmental issues across the Penn community and throughout the world. The Group seeks to incorporate ideals from a diverse community, and expose the campus, community and the world at large to an expanded knowledge of environmental issues. This website is yet another great template.
  • University of Vermont (UVM) prides itself on its "green" campus practices, such as recycling, energy conservation, and reduction of toxic chemicals. Over the years, students, faculty, and staff have collaborated to create systems and projects that reduce the university's environmental "footprint". The UVM Environmental Council recently issued an Environmental Report Card on the university's progress.
  • Yale University, School of Forestry & Environmental Studies prepares new leadership and creates new knowledge to sustain and restore the long-term health of the biosphere and the well-being of its people. For 100 years, first as a pioneering school of forestry, Yale has marshaled the expertise of diverse disciplines in the service of responsible stewardship of the environment. As the world's population grows and development accelerates, conserving the beauty, diversity, and integrity of the natural world becomes at once more important and more challenging.
