This study aims to achieve energy waste reductions via the rewiring of human habits. By studying the ways in which pro-environmental behavior can be encouraged, this thesis attempts to identify origins of energy waste on the CU-Boulder campus while finding ways to reduce this waste with minimal financial investment. In the first part of this thesis, I identify strategies that have had noteworthy success in previous studies. Upon identifying four primary strategies, the second part of the thesis reveals how these are implemented on the CU campus and whether they have been successful.
