Sustainable Engineering Education Key Resources Repository (SEEKRR)

This repository was established by the AIME Sustainability Steering Committee in 2012 as a reference to best practices in infusing sustainability into engineering education, mainly at the university level. Its intended use is for educators within the AIME disciplines, as we recognize that many of our sister engineering disciplines and specific leaders within the AIME disciplines have proven programs and techniques from which the rest of us can draw. We also hope this tool connects key players in this arena to promote sustainable engineering practices for the good of the profession and society as a whole. We welcome other users and contributions to this database.
