American University's Environmental Collaborative ("ECOllaborative") is the gathering place for members of the American University community who are working to advance environmental protection and societal prosperity during a period of rapid global environmental change.

Green Teaching Program

The Center for Teaching, Research and Learning manages the Green Teaching Certificate, 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.
