Our office often presents to classes on sustainability, especially if the class is working on a sustainability-themed final project. We work with faculty to incorporate sustainability into their curriculum, or into undergrad or graduate level research projects and theses. Courses from a wide variety of disciplines, from Engineering to English, have assigned sustainability themed projects.

In order to keep track of the many class projects that have been completed related to sustainability, we ask that after each semester faculty upload student projects into the Tufts Digital Library and put it in the Office of Sustainability Student Project Database collection. It’s a great place to see what projects students have worked on and provides the opportunity for students to build off each other’s work.

If you are a Tufts faculty interested in integrating institutional sustainability challenges into your course or research, please contact Tina Woolston, Sustainability Program Director at
