Curriculum and research subpages can either be separate or together. Try separate first.

Some of what is above is part of the curriculum (e.g. Dick Andrus's field study program is a course) and should be moved to that section.

The definition of co-curricular education that we are using from the Stars rating system would exclude a good bit of the above (e.g the listing of student organizations, UNLESS they are actually involved in co-curricular ed as follows (READ ALL THE RELEVANT PAGES OF STARS!).

1. "Institution coordinates an ongoing peer‐to‐peer sustainability outreach and education program for students. In the program, student educators are formally designated by the institution and receive formal training or participate in an institution‐sponsored orientation. The institution offers staff and/or financial support to the program."

2. measurable results in advancing sustainability. The campaign could take the form of a competition, such as a residence hall conservation competition, or collective challenge, such a campus‐wide drive to achieve a specific sustainability target.
For this credit, the outreach campaign(s) are directed toward at least 50 percent of the student body. For example, if the campaign targets on‐campus residents, at least 50 percent of the institution’s students must live on campus in order to qualify for the credit. Multiple campaigns that cumulatively reach or measure at least 50 percent of the student body count for this credit.

3.Institution holds at least one sustainability‐related outreach campaign directed at students that yields Institution includes sustainability prominently in new student orientation activities and/or materials distributed to new students.

Some more research info:

Dr. Kanad Ghose and Dr. Quinru Qiu are working to develop highly efficient computers that use less energy. At the Center for Advanced Microelectronics Manufacturing (CAMM), researchers are working on "roll-to-roll" electronics manufacturing, which is more energy-efficient than current manufacturing methods.
