Howard University and the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) are partnering on an environmental leadership initiative. The goals of the partnership are to "provide unprecedented educational and career opportunities for Howard University students, while providing diverse and premiere academic candidates to EDF and the greater environmental community."
A dedicated group of students, faculty and staff at Howard have been committed to making their university a sustainability standout. This partnership should be an excellent step toward creating a strong sustainability infrastructure.
Highlights of the partnership, which are still being worked out, include developing "green" curricula and creating internship and fellowship opportunities @EDF. In addition, EDF will collaborate on a "practical energy efficiency investment plan for the university."
