U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC)
Students from many programs of study—including Civil Engineering Technology, Architectural Technology, Landscape Horticulture and Interior Design—come together in the USGBC-DCTC Student Group to learn and participate in hands-on green building experiences. USGBC students engage in service-learning projects while advocating for sustainable practices and policies on campus.
