No more cow college

The News:

Colorado State University is banking that the green movement is here to stay, announcing plans Tuesday for a unique school to train green collar workers.

The school, at CSU's Fort Collins campus, will be called the School of Global Environmental Sustainability. It will cater to students from various disciplines keen to hone their skills for the nation's growing green industry. . . .

CSU Provost Tony Frank said a detailed curricula for the new school has not been determined, but it would span issues such as water, environmental entrepreneurship and public policy. The school will begin offering certificates to students from other disciplines within the first year. Graduate and undergraduate programs would be offered in 2010.
