CU-Boulder Recognized as One of The 2010 Award Honoree
Boulder Chamber Annual Award Honorees
The University of Colorado at Boulder is well known for loving the environment—and there are over 50 years of reasons why. CU-Boulder is home to the nation’s first student-run environmental program (1970) and its first collegiate recycling program (1976). It is also home to the nation’s first environmental law class and casebook, Cases and Materials on the Law of Natural Resources (1951), and one of its top 10 environmental law programs today.
The campus is continuing to lead in efforts to reduce its environmental footprint, with a growing list of LEED-certified building projects, the nation’s first-ever zero-waste BCS football stadium, and aggressive efforts to reduce energy and water usage as much as possible. CU-Boulder is also among the nation's leaders in research dedicated to environmental sciences and energy—including key partnerships with federal research laboratories and sister universities in the state—underscoring its widespread and long-standing commitment to understanding and preserving the environment through its research, teaching, service, and day-to-day operations.
Awardees were recognized at an April 21, 2011 dinner hosted by the Boulder Chamber of Commerce. To view original publication, visit : http://www.boulderchamber.com/pages/AnnualAwardHonorees/
