School's environmental commitment 1:
The Renewable and Sustainable Energy Institute (RASEI) was launched as a campus initiative in early 2006 to become an international force in solving the energy challenge through research, education and technology commercialization. Based on extensive faculty input, CU determined that a successful initiative must be highly interdisciplinary, integrating the University’s extensive research in renewable and sustainable energy with its strengths in climate and environmental science, behavioral studies, policy analysis, and entrepreneurship. RASEI reflects this integration with a three-pronged approach that emphasized discovery, transformation, and entrepreneurship.

School's environmental commitment 2:
Dual degree program MBA/MS Environmental Studies

School's environmental commitment 3:
Net Impact Case competition -- we host this event each year, developing a "live case" with a company. Recent corporate partners have included CH2M Hill, Johns Manville, Vail Resorts, Newmont Mining,and Ball Corporation.
