The University of Vermont, ranked a Tier 1 Best National University by U.S. News & World Report, has chosen Bisk Education’s University Alliance division as the exclusive online provider of professional certificate programs in sustainability leadership.
The instructor-led, video-based professional certificates in Campus Sustainability Leadership and Corporate Sustainability Leadership will build upon the University of Vermont’s national reputation for the strength of its faculty and offerings in sustainability and environmental sciences. The university’s commitment to environmental stewardship was highlighted most recently by its “A” rating in an independent evaluation of university campus sustainability activities nationwide.
“The University of Vermont is excited about working with Bisk Education to make these cutting-edge sustainability programs available online to a national and international audience,” said Cynthia Belliveau, Dean of Continuing Education. “As a longtime leader in environmental protection and sustainability education, the University of Vermont is pleased to partner with the leader in online education.”
The programs, which will showcase streaming video lectures by noted professors and environmental experts at the University of Vermont, promise to maximize interaction and convenience through advanced Internet technology. Using dynamic features such as faculty-hosted chat rooms, discussion boards and MP3/MP4 mobile audio and video, students can enjoy a rich experience that no other online certificate program can match.
“Bisk Education is honored to have been chosen by the University of Vermont to help expand its reach through state-of-the-art sustainability programs that can be accessed anytime and anywhere online,” said Nathan M. Bisk, Founder and Chairman of Bisk Education. “These programs provide in-demand skills for a growing career field that’s reshaping businesses and campuses in the transition to a sustainable world.”
Open enrollment in the new programs will begin in the spring, with classes scheduled to start in July 2011.
