Abstract—Green audit is a holistic perspective of looking into
the totality of the actions towards greening the university and is
foremost reflected in its policies alongside the organization’s
profile, the curriculum being the core of the educative process
as well as its environment-related programs and projects. These
interacting dimensions are geared towards forwarding
recommendations for future directions which includes regular
assessment and evaluation of the efforts done along
environmental preservation and protection. It takes
environmentalism as its overriding framework. With it is the
underlying concept of advocating for the preservation,
restoration and/ or improvement of the natural environment. It
embraces risk communication to create consciousness and
establish balance relations between humans and the various
natural systems on which they depend in such a way that all the
components are accorded a proper degree of sustainability
which is deeply rooted in the consciousness of its stakeholders.
The descriptive-correlational research design was used in this study to determine the relationship of variables. Documentary analysis was also adopted in trying to measure the extent of integration of environmental themes/ subjects into the curriculum using Rubrics. This research takes into account the examination of UEP system as an organization of its activity to check what it is doing to protect the natural environment and bring about environmental consciousness, which is creating general awareness of environmental issues, their causes and solutions by bringing about changes in the perception to its personnel which will ultimately radiate to a wider spectrum, that is the broader community UEP is a part of.
