Two New Sustainability Modules for Spring 2012 (Must Register by 1/23)

Greetings everyone. In light of shifting enrollment patterns and to better accommodate schedules, especially for those of you working full or part time, we are offering two NEW modules on sustainability, but you must register for either one of them by next week’s registration deadline.

The first module is March 2nd/3rd and will focus on the environmental policy foundations of sustainability communities with a special emphasis on green infrastructure, climate change planning, and area wide brownfields revitalization.

The second module is March 30th and 31st and will examine regional sustainability planning, with a special focus on the preliminary activities of HUD’s Regional Sustainability grantees. I will be teaching both modules and I anticipate having guest speakers to join us for both modules. Each module is independent of the other, meaning you do not need to take both, you can take just one.

Please share with other VT students. Let me know if you have any questions.

FYI….we anticipate these courses will be up on Hokie Spa sometime in the next 24-48 hours…so keep looking for them
