APSUS a Finalist in Second Nature Climate Leadership Awards

In March 2013, American Public University System (APUS) was recognized as a finalist in Second Nature Climate Leadership Award. APUS is composed of two branches known by the abbreviations APU and AMU. American Public University or APU expands access to higher education with more than 170 affordable degrees and certificates to prepare students for service and leadership in a diverse and global society. American Military University or AMU educates those who serve with focused programs for national security and public safety professionals.

There are a number of organizations that are helping to educate people about the science of climate change and other environmental threats but APSUS was acknowledged as a leader in higher education by Second Nature's annual awards.

These Second Nature awards recognize innovative and advanced leadership in education for sustainability, climate mitigation and adaptation and institutionalized sustainability at signatory campuses of the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment.

APUS is among three other institutions selected as a finalist for a Climate Leadership Award in the category of “Master’s Degree Granting Institutions.”
