Yesterday, UNH submitted its very first public STARS score, and I am happy to report that we got the gold!
UNH earns STARS Gold
We will be doing more press around this soon, but in the meantime I wanted to thank all of the MANY UNH departments, offices, and people who worked with us to collect, analyze and submit all the data and information needed.
It took more than a village.
It took the effort and coordination of many, many people, and we appreciate it!
In particular, I'd like to thank:...Read More
This week, we are hosting our first faculty design institute to develop UNH's forthcoming Dual Major in Sustainability.
Join us virtually by following #UNHSDM on Twitter and visiting the dual major's website at unhsdm.weebly.com.
Digital learning is going to be a big part of this new dual major. So, as part of the process to design the dual major, we're "greeting the tweet" (the digital equiv of "walking the talk?"). No? How about "probbing the blog?"
See you in cyberspace!

I thought I'd take a little time to explain my senior project and get you all excited about checking out the URC. My group is working to create a more sustainable, Child Study and Development Center (CSDC). There are plans for the CSDC to be rebuilt as the current building is undersized, and showing its age. Under this idea a few civil and environmental engineering students, have used this as an opportunity to employ many new green technologies. While the actual implementation of the designs...Read More

The Sustainability Academy is looking for a student intern this summer with an interest in energy and climate to work with our campus-wide Energy Task Force.
Details about the positions and instructions for applying can be found here:
In my CIE 796/896.03: Green Building Design course we are currently performing energy audits on our homes. By looking at our electric, water, oil, natural gas bills, etc., from the past few years we were able to put together background data. From what we compiled in these previous bills we will implement our own green measure and monitor the reduction in our energy bills, all while making our house a greener place to live.
If you are interested in determining exactly what uses the most energy...Read More
