Faculty Kevin Fingerman Environmental Science & Management

Humboldt State has received a 2014-2015 Campus as a Living Lab grant from the California State University. HSU will use the grant to redesign Energy, Technology & Society (ENVS 370), an upper level course that explores technical, economic and policy changes concerning energy generation and use.

The Campus as a Living Lab Grant Program provides funds for teams of faculty and facilities staff to develop or redesign of a course that ties elements of sustainability into opportunities for learning using the campus physical plant. Funds of up to $12,000 are awarded to support the teams in the preparation of the proposed course.
