Looking to integrate sustainable practices into your campus operations while preparing your students for 21st century careers? 

Join USGBC Florida for a live webinar presentation about LEED Lab -- a win-win approach for both college campuses and students.  LEED Lab is a multidisciplinary immersion course that utilizes the built environment to educate and prepare students to become green building leaders and sustainability-focused citizens.  In the course, students assess the performance of existing facilities on campus and choose one building where they will facilitate the LEED for Building Operations and Maintenance (LEED O+M) process with the goal of certifying the facility.  At the close of the semester, the students are prepared to sit for the LEED AP O+M professional credential exam. LEED Lab meets the needs of the building industry by equipping students with the skills, knowledge and expertise required to be effective communicators, project managers, critical thinkers, problem solvers, engaged leaders, and team players.

Over the past 4 years LEED Lab has educated more than 1200 students representing over 40 disciplines. Learn how you can join the growing network of institutions across the globe offering this innovative project-based learning course.

TESTIMONIALS

“Working with the students has allowed us to gain an outside perspective that has proven beneficial to evaluate our plans and processes, to rethink some applications” says Chris Vetick, Assistant Director of Grounds and Fleet at The Catholic University of America , “and to put our monitoring efforts into a working document that can be modified as needed and tracked to obtain measurable data.”

“The ability to work with students from varying disciplines, apply critical thinking skills and engage in a professional project that improves our university was very rewarding. [LEED Lab] has been my favorite course at NC State.” – Jacob Seyle, student at NC State

“LEED Lab has validated my interest in pursuing green building as a profession and I’m grateful to have led the opportunity to be involved in this unprecedented course at UCSB.” 2014-2015 LEED Lab student
