In honor of earth day, which was last week, I would like to present to all Aggies the free GreenNMSU app. This is a helpful app for Aggie students interested in a Undergraduate or Graduate level minor in sustainability, because it gives a list of all the offered courses that go towards the sustainability minor. The greenNMSU app gives clear and concise listings and course offerings giving Green Aggies a path of classes to take to get them towards a sustainability degree.
Throughout the years NMSU has increased its reputation as a Green university. We are nationally recognized as one of the Leaders in Green (Energy Efficient) Buildings, and have received a gold rating on the National Stars repot which puts NMSU in the top 100 schools for “going green.” Today sustainable careers are expanding in agriculture and forestry, energy, environmental protection, governmental and regulatory administration, green construction, manufacturing, recycling and waste reduction, research, design, transportation and consulting services. Aggies at NMSU are expanding and getting job offers in these areas as well.
These Sustainability minors are housed in NMSU’s colleges of Engineering; Agricultural, Consumer & Environmental Sciences; Arts and Sciences and the Business college. Management professor and front-runner David Boje is coordinating NMSU “greening the curriculum.” The 18 credit, university-wide undergraduate minor offered in three tracks allows students to explore challenges in local and global sustainability. In addition to the undergraduate minor offered, there is now a graduate minor of sustainability as well, that requires 12 credits to complete.
GO AGGIES! & GO GREEN!!
