If anyone knows of outstanding high school students who are looking to major in sustainability at a major land grant university, I happen to know of a new program that just might fit the bill. It's called Environment, Economy, Development and Sustainability and it just launched this fall.
Drop me a message if you're interested.
And just to show you TOSU's commitment to sustainability:
Ohio State on Sunday (9/30) announced it has signed a letter of intent with Iberdrola Renewables to purchase 50 megawatts (MW) of wind energy capacity from the Blue Creek Wind Farm, located in Van Wert and Paulding counties in Ohio. The purchase of clean, renewable wind energy capacity equates to approximately 25 percent of the entire Columbus campus electricity load, and is one of the single largest purchases of actual renewable energy by any university in the country.
The agreement helps Ohio State take a big step toward becoming a "carbon neutral university," a commitment the university has been working toward since President Gee signed the American College and University Presidents Climate Commitment in 2008. The university continues to develop and implement plans to achieve its sustainability goals, including the creation of a campus culture that embraces sustainability.
