Colorado State starting environmental school

FORT COLLINS, Colorado ” Colorado State University is creating a new school to prepare students for the emerging green economy.

CSU president Larry Penley announced plans for the School of Global Environmental Sustainability in Denver on Tuesday.

The school will include professors and researchers from many university departments. CSU will spend $350,000 to launch the school but hopes to raise $100 million for an endowment over the next decade.

Penley said Diana Wall, a soil ecologist at CSU, will serve as the school’s founding director.
