This is an excellent piece of work that is comprehensive, in-depth, very readable and well documented. It brings together in one place much of the great work going on in the higher education community to create a more sustainable future. It goes well beyond providing a needed perspective on the state of the movement to making a strong case for why and how colleges and universities must be bolder in demonstrating leadership toward sustainability.

Sustainability is a powerful strategy for higher education to achieve renewal, reformation, and relevance in the 21st century. Boldly Sustainable examines how colleges and universities can leverage their commitment to sustainability to not only save money and have a positive impact on the environment, but also to carve out a distinctive niche in the marketplace.

Citing real world examples of innovative solutions in higher education, Peter Bardaglio and Andrea Putman illustrate how building a culture of sustainability through creative leadership, a signature curriculum, an enhanced learning environment, and sustainability initiatives can help institutions to distinguish themselves from the pack, bolster their value proposition, and raise their institutional profiles.

Geared to both newcomers and experienced practitioners, this book offers higher education leaders a strategy for breaking through the static and capturing the attention of a world overwhelmed with a barrage of information. Showing how sustainability is not only the right thing to do but also the smart thing, this book provides breakthrough concepts, strategies, and tools that produce a sharper vision, an energized mission, and a firmer footing in the marketplace.
