The CUA LEED Lab was developed at CUA as a research, methodology and application course, and is comprised of detailed lectures and technical evaluation. Our focus is on the quality of scholarly research over the quantity of buildings certified; LEED Certification is a goal yet the research opportunities and learning outcomes are most critical to our students and our administration. The first book describing our course LEED Lab; A Model for Sustainable Design Education is currently in production.
