United States Green Building Council

Academic

Emerging Green Builders is a student organization open to members in the colleges of Engineering, Interior Design, Architecture, Landscape Architecture, and Construction Management. The club is a means of gathering all students interested in Green/Sustainable design from different colleges that may not be in contact otherwise. Together, the group will attend lectures and workshops put on by the United States Green Building Council, learn the policies and procedures of LEED design and professional certification, promote and support the Universities in becoming more environmentally friendly, and create contacts within Engineering and Architecture forms which support these building standards. This will be a chapter of the University of Nebraska Lincoln of the national organization of Emerging Green Builders. Please see www.USGBC.org for more information!
