The new membership will offer College of the Rockies support as the college continues to move forward in sustainable goals. The college already offers a popular sustainable business degree program.
College of the Rockies’ Business Program Co-ordinator, Greg McCallum said, “Membership in the AASHE is a logical fit with the sustainability focus of our Bachelor of Business Administration in Sustainable Business Practices degree program and of College of the Rockies as a whole. Membership provides us with many valuable resources to help the college continue the sustainability movement on our campuses.” -Press release
