About the program
The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning and Eco-Sense piloted a Green Teaching Certificate during the 2008-09 academic year, and the program is entering its fourth year this fall. This is part of an attempt to reward faculty members who are green teachers, while giving green courses a familiar face among students. The Green Teaching Certificate is based on a system of self-reporting. Faculty members at American University can qualify for a Green Teaching Certificate by answering a number of questions about their efforts to make their courses more sustainable. Upon evaluation, qualified courses will be rewarded with a seal representing one of five different levels of the Green Teaching Certificate, which can be put on syllabi and Blackboard pages to market courses as green.
