Through UGA's Living Lab, faculty members are empowered to apply their expertise in a given academic area to contribute to UGA's strides in becoming a leading university in sustainability progress. By involving campus's current needs and resources into research outside of the classroom, or as teaching tools in the classroom, faculty members can make lasting, meaningful impacts on campus and beyond. We advocate that faculty members incorporate Living Lab principles through:
- Experiential learning within coursework
- Capstone projects
- Faculty or student-involved research
