Campuses across the nation are adopting sustainability initiatives to demonstrate environmental responsibility, to encourage awareness and efficiency among students and staff, and of course–to save on energy costs. This vast effort to modify behavior, update inefficient and costly buildings, and design state-of-the-art high performance facilities represents a heightened environmental consciousness.
With so many college facility managers and design teams working on sustainability projects, we’re seeing some highly creative solutions come about. We’d appreciate your nominations for colleges in the seven categories below to recognize the schools that are leading the change.
Once we compile responses from students, faculty and industry professionals, we’ll interview the leaders at these institutions about their initiatives, and we’ll publish a report profiling the innovative achievements of these schools.
