Green Teaching

The Green Teaching Program, which has won a national award and been adopted by six other universities around the country, allows faculty to choose from a list of sustainability measures to collect points towards a Green Teaching Certificate for their courses.

Upon evaluation, qualified courses will be rewarded with a logo representing on of five different levels of the Green Teaching certificate, which are displayed on Blackboard course pages and can be put on syllabi, to market courses as green.

900 AU Professors are Certified Green Teachers

Learn more about the Green Teaching Program, or apply to be a Green Teacher.

If you have questions about the program, or would like some tips about creating a Green Teaching Program at your own university, please contact Anna Olsson at or 202-885-6077.
