Tampa, Fla. — Feb. 3
The University of Vermont (UVM) is taking its sustainability coursework online with its certificate in sustainable innovation.
Through three, eight-week courses, the certificate seeks to help professionals become transformational agents who will position themselves to steer their organization toward success. Emphasizing the maximization of the “triple bottom line” (people, planet and profit), the program seeks to empower them with valued, marketable skills.
Using an online classroom supported by University Alliance, the certificate seeks to allow instructors to share their expertise with professionals across the U.S. and globally. The program features streaming video lectures, as well as a variety of interactive tools that connect instructors and participants, including discussion boards, live chat rooms and email.
In addition to the certificate, UVM is launching a new certificate in sustainable campus innovation, a program developed to help operations, administration and student leadership personnel apply sustainability initiatives on campus.
