The SUNY Green Building Experiential Learning Collaborative (GBELC) is a partnership between SUNY Polytechnic Institute, SUNY ESF, and SUNY Oneonta supported through the SUNY Performance Improvement Fund for clean energy workforce development. The GBELC is designed to build new curriculum in green building certification and enable the formal student training through green building courses offered in all the partner campuses. This project will train a cohort of highly skilled graduates proficient in green building design and certification. It is our hope that the curriculum modules piloted in this collaborative will inspire others and enable adoption of green building experiential learning courses among other SUNY schools.
