Recognize a Leading College or University for Sustainability
Presented by the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education http://www.aashe.org/ and the Center for Green Schools www.centerforgreenschools.org/, the Innovation in Green Building Award recognizes a leading college or university that is transforming the built environment and creating living laboratories for sustainability.
The application http://www.aashe.org/about/aashe-awards/innovation-green-building-award is due July 27 and must include at least one LEED-certified building in its analysis and would ideally examine how the college or university is using LEED as a tool for campus greening. Special emphasis is placed on innovative projects that promote institutional change, such as projects that use the building as a pedagogical tool or serve as a pilot for green technologies and practices to be rolled out across the campus. Awardees will receive free registration at both AASHE 2012 http://conf2012.aashe.org/ and Greenbuild 2012 http://www.greenbuildexpo.org/Home.aspx.
