Roadmap to a Green Campus

The Roadmap is a strategy guide for using the LEED green building certification program as a framework for developing and evolving campus-wide sustainability plans. Contained within the 100+ page document are more than 100 tools and resources to support campuses in their greening efforts and more than 20 unique profiles of college and university success stories. The guide was created with the support of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).

Hands-on LEED: Guiding College Student Engagement,

This document speaks exclusively about the role students can play supporting green building projects and how they can contribute to LEED certification efforts. The guidance outlines three options for engaging students - course work, internships and volunteer opportunities. It details the benefits of involving students and outlines ways to initiate the process of developing an engagement program, such as planning considerations and LEED-related activities and tasks that students can perform.
