Thanks to the ACS Green Chemistry Institute, here is a list of colleges and universities with a green chemistry program. If you have any additions or edits to suggest for this list, please do so here.
"Green Chemistry" is an important component of sustainability, and having this list of schools with green chemistry courses and programs can be helpful in disseminating ideas to interested chemistry faculty at other schools.
Could there be a similar list for renewable/sustainable/clean energy courses and programs in chemistry? A few preliminary lists have been started (and I’ve started my own informal list), but these may benefit from being updated and consolidated:
http://www1.eere.energy.gov/education/colleges_universities.html -- lists colleges and universities offering opportunities in energy efficiency and renewable energy, but not limited to chemistry.
http://rev-up.org/ users can upload information about renewable energy courses or programs into a searchable database; again, not limited to chemistry.
Would the ACS S3G be a logical home for a compilation of contact information about who teaches chemistry courses or offers programs on sustainable energy topics? If so, I would be happy to assist or to hear about other ideas for sharing and disseminating information throughout the chemical education community.
Thanks for sharing those helpful links to energy sustainability-related programs. I agree that it would be helpful to compile contact information such as you suggest. Perhaps others here have some information that could be shared or ideas.
There is another great green chemistry resource on materials developed at The University of Oregon and can be found at: http://greenchem.uoregon.edu/gems.html
This related item was just emailed from the ACS Green Chemistry Institute. The map sounds helpful in cataloging chemists' sustainability activities.
