Completed Class and Co-curricular Projects
Class and co-curricular projects are not only experiential learning tools, but can assist Ohio University in advancing sustainability initiatives from a conceptual to a design or pilot implementation phase. The sustainability projects included below are examples of successfully completed projects. Once projects progress to full implementation phase, they are included in our Sustainability Hubs & Initiatives webpages.
Selected Projects from ES 4832/5832
Students enrolled in Sustainability Implementation (ES4832/5832) work with academic and administrative teams across campus to identify sustainable solutions to institutional issues. Previous projects have included work on Zero Waste Athletics, Take Back the Tap and the Real Food Challenge, along with studies to analyze how to reduce post-consumer food waste in dining halls and a cost-benefit analysis of the compost facility, among many others.
