Green building, or sustainable building, creates comfortable residential and commercial buildings while mitigating the toll on human and environmental health. Rather than replacing conventional building practices, green building methods simply supplement healthier and more efficient materials and strategies throughout the construction process.

The Environmental Protection Agency provides this definition:

''Green building is the practice of creating structures and using processes that are environmentally responsible and resource-efficient throughout a building's life-cycle from siting to design, construction, operation, maintenance, renovation and deconstruction. This practice expands and complements the classical building design concerns of economy, utility, durability, and comfort. Green building is also known as a sustainable or high performance building.''

MUM offers an education in architecture, construction, landscaping, or city planning, plus methods of strengthening a system that takes sustainability into account at every step of the process, upholding a conscious awareness of human and environmental health.

MUM's Sustainable Living programs enable individuals to be pioneers in this field, making real and lasting changes to buildings used for life, work, and play.
