CAL-Endorsed Sites

Duke Brodhead Center
The Brodhead Center, Duke's main dining hall, can be used as a platform to learn about post-consumer waste, the agriculture industry or even the carbon cost of transportation.

 

CAL-Endorsed Sites

Global problems have local manifestations. Duke University has buildings, initiatives and projects that are working to combat the same problems that the world is also combatting. The CAL program has chosen specific Duke sites that are working to solve pressing global issues with a sustainable focus. These sites are a representation of the CAL program’s goal to bridge on-campus issues and their solutions with the global issues they represent. The CAL program hopes that by tying world issues to a tangible on-campus site that students will be able to connect their course learnings and campus experiences to better understand world issues. Furthermore, these sites were not chosen for incorporating a strict definition of environmental sustainability, but for incorporating sustainability in diverse disciplines. These sites involve concepts of social and economic sustainability. A CAL-endorsed site serves as an excellent starting point to learn about global problems, to be inspired to complete a CAL project, or to even appreciate the Duke campus a little more.
