Curriculum

Richland’s faculty is rapidly integrating core sustainability and green economy concepts into their courses. In November 2012, the Communications, Education, Humanities, and Fine Arts Division, in collaboration with Ben Newton, Sustainability Program Coordinator, showcased student projects at a Sustainability Fair. Ben Newton also integrates many sustainability concepts into his Physical Geography course, including climate change, species diversity loss, invasive species, renewable energy, deforestation, and groundwater mining.
