Student-led courses in sustainability

At CEMUS, it is the students who lead the courses. CEMUS hires student course coordinators to administer and lead interdisciplinary courses on issues of sustainability. Course coordinators are often working in pairs and are responsible for planning, implementing, and evaluating a university course.
