Preparing the next generation of leaders 
through experiential learning


LEED Lab is a multidisciplinary immersion course that utilizes the built environment to educate and prepare students to become green building leaders and sustainability-focused citizens. Through the course, students assess the performance of existing facilities on campus and chose one building where they will facilitate the LEED for Existing Buildings: Operations & Maintenance (LEED EB:O&M) process with the goal of certifying the facility. At the close of the semester the students are prepared to sit for the LEED EB:O&M professional credential exam.


LEED Lab meets the needs of industry by equipping students with the skills, knowledge and expertise needed to be effective communicators, project managers, critical thinkers, problem solvers, engaged leaders, and team players.
