HOUSTON (AP) - Texas colleges and universities are increasingly
building environmental practices into curriculums, a move officials
say is a combination of "good business" and idealism.
Sustainability is a wide-ranging field of study to prepare
students for a more environmentally conscious world.
The Houston Chronicle reports that the concept is showing up in
various forms in academia. The University of Houston has a class
about carbon trading, while Rice University offers minors in energy
and water sustainability.
Community colleges, boosted by stimulus funding and federal
grants, push green technology work force training.
A University of Texas at Austin official says such studies are
essential for jobs and appeal to the current generation.
